Eulodia (known as Tootsie) requests and serves her agency’s most challenging clients: MS, ALS, Parkinsons, bed-bound...you name it! She also has a special dedication to serving Veterans. She volunteers to allow any new employees to "shadow" her, teaching new (or less-confident) caregivers the skills needed for some of the most challenging client cases. She does all of this as a cancer survivor who cares for her husband Charles, a disabled Vietnam Veteran. She’s also a brand new U.S. citizen as of this summer!
During a winter blizzard, caregivers were calling out sick because they couldn't get to their cars. Eulodia, up at 4:30am to dig her car out, received a list of bed-bound clients and those who absolutely needed a vist - and she not only completed visits for all of her own clients over the next two days, but also went to the clients of other caregivers to be sure that all clients who were most desperately in need of personal care received the care they needed.
