What is it about home care that inspires you?
I am inspired on the job when a client reaches their goals or complete a difficult task. I also really enjoy seeing a client smile, laugh, and tell a story from their past.
Please share a favorite memory from home care:
One of my most recent memories is from simply transporting a client for various errands. He asked me to go into the grocery store to purchase items on his list, but I suggested that we get a scooter, so he could go into the store with me. It was a great idea, as we had so much fun going up and down the aisles, learning the layout of the store, and it has since given him something to look forward to and gives him a sense of independence.
