A prestigious award bestowed on a caregiver who has demonstrated and fulfilled the Comfort Keepers’ mission statement throughout the year to treat clients as if they are taking care of a member of their own family. Gerilynn is a shining representation of all dedicated caregivers. She maintains the highest standards in care, she is a team player willing to pick up different assignments, she readily fills in for last minute call outs and works closely with other Comfort Keepers sharing clients and assignments. She is always on time, a hard worker who genuinely enjoys her clients and her clients love her back.
During her years working as a Comfort Keeper, Gerilynn has faced some tough clients. With a low-key demeanor, not only has she handled each challenging situation with competence, she is also able to find the special interest, hobby or activity her clients like to do. Her skill of providing interactive caregiving is unmatched and her creativity allows the client to participate at their individual level of functioning.
An accomplished interactive caregiver engaging her clients in games, conversations, activities and exercise, Gerilynn’s client files are documented through ongoing visits by our care management team. Clients who were depressed have reported lifted spirits looking forward to her visits. Clients who were struggling to maintain quality in their lives have reported a renewed feeling of hope; and clients who were lonely reported finding a new friend.
Also recognized for their contributions, Eva Jabathy and Brandon Primeaux were honored as runner ups to the 2012 Comfort Keeper of the Year Award. Congratulations to Gerrilynn, Eva and Brandon! Your dedication and commitment is much appreciated and we Comfort Keepers thank you for making a difference in the life of a senior.
Congratulations to all of the caregivers selected and honored. You truly make a difference in the life of your clients.
