Every month, we honor and recognize a client and caregiver of the month, who is a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond in their current job responsibilities.
Read their stories below.
Caregiver Tammy Chevere
Congratulations to Tammy Chevere for being the caregiver of the month. Here is what she has to say about being a caregiver at Hands From The Heart.
- What inspired you to become a caregiver? I’ve always loved being able to help others.
- What have you learned by working at hands from the heart? To have patience with everything that you do.
- How has Hands from the heart affected your life? Hands from the heart gave me the chance to care for others while learning to understand other’s needs.
- What is your proudest moment at Hands from the heart? Knowing I was able to put a smile on someone’s face while doing what I love.
- What advice do you give to prospective caregivers? This is the field to be in if you enjoy caring for others, it’s a good feeling knowing you’re able to be there for someone else when they need it.
Thank you, Tammy for all your hard work!
Client Christopher Macguire
Congratulations to Christopher Macguire for being consumer of the month.
- How did you choose HFTH? A social worker I worked with at a previous agency left and went to HFTH. The company had great reviews and thought it would be a great opportunity for me if I joined.
- What do you enjoy doing with your caregiver? I enjoy going outside to get fresh air and exercise as much as I can– as long as my body is up for it. Since I am visually impaired, my caregiver is great at helping me read and guiding me with where things are that I cannot see up close.
- Have you been with another agency before? How are we different? I was with another agency before HFTH because I did not have PHW. Instead, I had charity hours through an MS foundation. Once those hours ran out, I joined PWH and became a client at HFTH. This agency’s customer service has been great! I haven’t had any problems thus far. I love my scheduling coordinator as well. I am very pleased with your company and happy to be a part of the agency.
- What do you wish first-time caregivers knew? First-time caregivers should know that it is better to ask if any assistance is needed, rather than making suggestions. Caregivers should also know that patients with MS like myself, are affected by the disease in different ways. Taking care of one person with this disease can be more difficult than another person with the same disability. Multiple Sclerosis comes in many different stages.
