Favorite Story About A Client
I once worked with a client who became pretty much house-bound because she was unable to drive. When we put in a caregiver, not only did she get out but her entire mood and spirit lifted! This is why we love what we do.

Experience with a Caregiver that Stands Out in your Mind
My most relevant story in the VA Spirit is when a client who is wheelchair bound was awaiting her caregiver who called out. Renae, our caregiver supervisor, went to the home and did total care for this client. The client adored her for her kindness, compassion, and helpfulness - Renae stayed for the entire 4-hour shift!

Our caregivers are true angels! The best part is seeing when a caregiver and client really match and the caregiver becomes like family.

Many of our caregivers have significance in my mind. Most recently I interviewed a caregiver who had just lost his mom to complications of diabetes. He is a nurse in his home country and had hesitated to move to the US because he felt he was the only one who could properly care for her.

So many of our caregivers have stories of struggle, strength, and caring. They are amazing.

Once we were hired for a wedding to help the grandmother out all day so the mom could concentrate on being mother of the bride. There was a mix-up with the family and when the caregiver arrived to drive grandma to the church, a family member had already picked her up. The caregiver called the office, found out where the wedding was, drove there and stayed with grandma all day!
