“A joy to be around!”
This is how one of Erica Barr’s clients recently described her. Members of the family rave about Erica’s professionalism as a caregiver. Erica has distinguished herself as someone who is unfailingly trustworthy, reliable and dependable. She is also an accomplished cook!
Erica was drawn to caregiving as early as high school, when she began to volunteer with elders. She loves listening to their stories and learning from their experiences. She has taken pleasure in helping her grandmother and great-grandmother in their senior years, so becoming a nursing assistant in home care was a natural career progression.
Erica understands the importance of stability in client schedules. She has often been willing to work on her day off in order to provide continuity of care for a client. She won high praise from office staff this month when she was willing to work on Easter to help a new client get adjusted. Our clients at Merrill Gardens appreciate how Erica’s care makes it possible for them to remain in an assisted living setting.
This month, not only will Erica receive a gift from Cascade Companion Care for her distinguished service, but a fellow caregiver (Machias Bechan) has offered to treat her to a professional massage! What a wonderful team we have!
Please join us in congratulating our Caregiver of the Month, Erica Barr!
