“CAREGivers like Patsy are the core of our business,” stated Sharon Massafra, Home Instead Senior Care local owner. “Without dedicated CAREGivers like Patsy, we could not provide the superior quality of service that sets Home Instead Senior Care apart from other organizations. CAREGivers are the foundation of Home Instead Senior Care and provide the support that helps older adults remain in their homes longer than they otherwise could.”
Patsy DeJesus was nominated by the Trumbull and Sandy Hook, Connecticut Home Instead Senior Care franchise due in part to the numerous letters they receive from family members of clients their CAREGivers serve. One loving spouse wrote, “Some people just by their very nature go over and beyond what is expected of them. Patsy is such a person.”
The adult daughter of a gravely ill gentleman wrote, “Patsy is a unique woman. She is a born caregiver, lovely and loving. She is a healing spirit. She is grace personified. Patsy has a calming presence that is both reassuring and loving. I knew that my father was in good hands with Patsy and that beyond the physical skill she had demonstrated in her ability to care, she had something extra – something that not everyone has – the ability to support emotionally and spiritually.”
Home Instead Senior Care provides more than 60 different services including companionship, meal preparation, light housework, medication reminders, incidental transportation, errands and shopping. CAREGivers are screened, bonded and insured, and have successfully completed criminal background checks. The company has in excess of 65,000 CAREGivers in more than 950 offices in 15 countries and 16 markets.
“Balancing the demands of family and careers while taking care of their senior loved ones can take its toll on a family caregiver,” Massafra commented. “Home Instead CAREGivers can serve as a respite for families while helping seniors remain independent for as long as possible.”
