Beryl is a home health aide from our Queens branch and lives in Queens, New York, and she’s originally from Jamaica. She has been an asset to our organization with her dedication and hard work for sixteen years. Beryl loves taking care of her seniors by making sure they have what they need. She works her shifts and is dependable. Another of the wonderful qualities which Beryl has is enjoying conversation. She loves talking to elderly people and listening to their stories. Beryl is a great listener and also has a sympathetic ear when the occasion arises. She is one of those people who genuinely care.
Our November Caregiver is Amazing!
It isn’t always easy taking care of a senior. Sometimes, they have bad days and may tend to take it out on the home health aide who is trying to assist them. Or, perhaps they don’t want to eat what’s been prepared or wear the clothes that have been laid out. Maybe they refuse to take their medication and have to be talked to. It takes a particular type of person who can handle it day in and day out. Beryl is that type of person. She hasn’t missed any shifts, and her seniors know they can count on her being there for them.
Knowing that a person whose company they enjoy acknowledges that their needs are going to be met and will be showing up when scheduled, brings that reassurance some seniors need to have. Through doctor appointments, running errands, cleaning, personal care or being a companion, Beryl’s seniors can count on her. She’s there when scheduled, always ready with a quick smile and a listening ear.
Beryl’s work ethics are to be commended for consistency and reliability. This is a quality that is rare to find in this day and age when people are more interested in talking than listening. To make the other person feel important and that they matter is a gift that Beryl has.
A Home Health Aide with values!
