Sharon Massafra stated, “Our franchise recognized Patsy DeJesus in 2011 as our CAREGiver of the Year, so it is quite a double honor that she is now being recognized on a national level as the Northeast Regional CAREGiver of the Year.” DeJesus is being recognized by the national Home Instead Senior Care organization for her consistent commitment and devoted service to older adults who are local clients of Home Instead Senior Care, the world’s largest provider of non-medical home care and companionship for seniors.
“CAREGivers like Patsy DeJesus,” stated Massafra, “are the core of our business. 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 of Patsy’s commitment, “Some people just by their very nature go over and beyond what is expected of them. Patsy is such a person.”
Home Instead Senior Care provides more than 60 different services including companionship, personal care, 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 U.S.-based 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.”
