August, 2013 – Judy Slaughter of Spring City, Pa – When several other caregivers became ill in the same week, Judy went above and beyond by covering numerous appointments so our clients would not be without the support they needed.
September, 2013 – Tracey Ronca of Phoenixville, PA – Tracey identified a rash on one of her dementia-care clients in Wayne, PA as a possible case of shingles. By reporting the shingles very early on, the client was treated in time to avoid the pain that sometimes can accompany this illness.
October, 2013 – Pat Reigel of Pottstown, PA – Pat provides live-in care to a senior client in Exton, PA. One morning she awakened him to find that his leg was extremely swollen. Her quick action alerted the family who in turn took the client to the ER where he was diagnosed and successfully treated for a blood clot.
November, 2013 – Victoria “Tori” Rouse of Philadelphia, PA – When Toritook her live-in client in West Chester, PA out to the shopping mall, she made a very strong impact on a clerk at one of the stores. The clerk went out of her way to call our office to report what a caring and compassionate approach Tori took with our client.
