Simone is one of the special people who understand the Comfort Keepers® mission without anyone ever telling her what it is. Her CNA training provides her with tools that she uses to truly make an impact on our client’s (and their family’s) lives. Simone cares for a client who requires a significant amount of care due to multiple strokes. Simone takes great pride in providing him the Interactive Caregiving she would provide a member of her own family. She has been proactive in identifying and engaging in activities with this client that have resulted in significant improvements in both his capabilities and his quality of life. They practice flash cards which they use to help make everyday items more familiar and useful to him. They practice reading daily news and working on his handwriting by working in workbooks and completing puzzles. The daily progression for him is a major step forward considering this is the first time he has been able to really read or write anything since his health issues began occurring in 2008.
She is truly a blessing to the clients that she works with yet if you asked her, she would tell you that she is the one who is blessed to have this opportunity. Her smile and positive attitude would light any room and certainly the life of anyone she has the opportunity to care for. Simone cares and this caring has truly changed lives!
