Caregivers Receive Recognition
The caregivers at Adultcare Assistance Homecare are dedicated to their clients. The role of a caregiver is not easy. It takes a very special team to care for others with such kindness and concern. Their empathy shines through even when working with dementia patients that do not fully understand. Additionally, each caregiver commits time and energy to continual development including monthly classroom training. The caregivers at Adultcare Assistance Homecare have built a unique culture of going above and beyond the highest homecare standards. It is a privilege and honor to present the 2013 “Best of Arizona” Home Health Award to all of our caregivers (many caregivers are not pictured because of client commitments). Thank you again for your hard work and dedication.
Discovering our limitations is tough. My family knows firsthand. When my husband was diagnosed with cancer we experienced sadness, exhaustion and stress. My commitments to work and family stretched beyond my capability. As others joined beside me, we pulled together as a team. More important to my respite, my husband was able to thrive at home. This is vital as living at home empowers independence, recovers dignity and grants familiarity leading to a healthier life.
Through my experience, I learned that home care in Arizona is different than in most of the country. Arizona permits the use of independent contractors and does not require criminal background clearance for caregivers. The lack of regulation in Arizona places citizens at risk. The more I have learned, the more I have become involved in protecting seniors and their families. This has led to Adultcare Assistance Homecare maintaining the highest standards for caregiver selection and training. My desire to protect Arizona seniors extends beyond my company with my appointment as the President of the Arizona Chapter of the Home Care Association of America.
