Homewatch CareGivers Northshore strives to provide our clients with top-quality, home care services. This best in class home care would not be possible without our amazing team of dedicated caregivers. Each year our caregivers simply surprise us and delight our seniors with all the hard work and compassion they show their clients. In recognition of their efforts, our office team collaborates and chooses one caregiver that has stood out amongst the rest throughout the year.
For 2019, our Caregiver of the Year was Cindy Gonzalez.
Cindy has been with Homewatch for over 3 years and for over 2 years, she has worked consistently with one client. She works with Mr. S 5 days a week and starts her shifts at 6:45am. Given the early start time and travel challenges, Cindy’s consistent on time performance is testament to the special connection she shares with her client.
Her client, Mr. S, has suffered a traumatic brain injury and has difficulty communicating. His schedule requires multiple visits throughout the week to therapists and the gym to help maintain his physical strength. Mr. S’s family has stated that Cindy is reliable and punctual and is always in a good mood. Although Mr. S does not communicate well, Cindy still interacts and engages with him. She is creative in working with him and bring him laughter – which he really needs. “If I had to sum Cindy up, I would say she brings joy and happiness,” reports Sally, Mr. S’s close friend.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication, Cindy. We are so proud to name you Caregiver of 2019 and have you represent Homewatch CareGivers.
