Compassion and connection are the threads that tie these three Caregiver of the Year Finalists together. In the coming weeks, we will introduce you to the top 10 finalists for this national award recognizing in-home caregivers and all that they do to keep people safe at home. The overall winner will be announced on November 1.
Amua Adu, HomeCare of the Rockies, Longmont, CO
“With both clients and co-workers Amua takes time to understand what others need to feel safe, comfortable, valued and then provides that with her own unique flair. Amua knows that people are more than a diagnosis and more than elderly. She takes time to get to know the whole person, and delivers care that fits the client’s needs and personal preferences.”
Zora Bullett, Bry & Wms Medical Inc., Harrisburg, PA
“Zora is kind, compassionate, and caring. She trains her co-workers so that they can give exemplary services also. She works with clients on every need - dementia, MS, Parkinson’s – there is no job too difficult and she loves a challenge. One client’s daughter called Zora’s name at the client’s funeral and said that she should take her place upfront with the family. She is an amazing person who does this with her heart and not just with her hands.”
Deanna Conroy, Home Helpers Home Care, Hinsdale, IL
“Dee connects on a deep level with her clients and strives to help them find purpose in their lives as they age, whether that is finding new ways to plant tomatoes or going on errands together. Several client’s families shared the peace of mind and comfort they have felt knowing Dee is there as a friend and companion, as well as providing care and keeping their loved ones safe.”
