Comfort Keepers of Lubbock, TX Caregiver of the Year Retires
What does it takes to be one of the best caregivers? Just ask Alta McCleery. Alta joined our Comfort Keepers family in 2013 and earned the prestigious Comfort Keeper® of the Year award in 2015.
How many 80 year old caregivers can always be a bright spot in their clients’ lives? After Alta retired from a supervisory industrial position, she decided to use her gift of compassion by becoming a Comfort Keeper. We assume that after 8 decades, Alta suffers from aches, pains and disappointments in her daily life, but the only thing we see is smiles, kindness and concern for others. Alta’s caregiving makes you want to sing “Don’t Worry; Be Happy!” Whether you are the employer or a family member of a loved one, when Alta is providing the care, you can rest assured. She’s Family. She has a Servant’s Heart. She’s the Gold Standard. She’s a Comfort Keeper!
Asked how she felt about receiving this honor, McCleery responded, “I’m very honored to have been chosen. Who would have thought they would choose an 80 year old for this honor.”
“I am excited that Alta was chosen for this award,” added Lisa Carson, RN, owner of the Lubbock Comfort Keepers. “Alta truly embodies the very best values that our caregivers so willingly share with our clients, and she is exactly the type of person I look for when hiring a caregiver. Seniors prefer to stay in their own homes as they age, and I am thrilled to own a business that can make their wishes a reality.” Lisa opened the Lubbock Comfort Keepers in 2002 and her business has helped hundreds of families in the community.
This month, McCleery will be retiring from Comfort Keepers and she will be so missed. In the 9 years since she has been with Comfort Keepers, she has made an undeniable difference. Congratulations on your retirement, Alta—it won’t be the same here without you!
