ANGEL OF THE MONTH | Solomy Nakintu
We are honored to award Solomy Nakintu Angel of the Month for March 2019. Solomy came on board with Visiting Angels Newton/Canton in February of 2015. The Case Managers who interviewed Solomy were impressed with her and knew she would provide skilled care to our clients. They described her as lovely, calm, confident and agreed she was capable and knowledgeable about taking care of people with various medical conditions. No matter the population she is working with, Solomy does this job from the heart and genuinely cares about her work. It is a pleasure to assign Solomy to a case as we know we can trust that she will have a positive attitude and will take excellent care of her client, keeping us informed of any issues that may arise.
Solomy came to the United States from Uganda in 2006. She and her four brothers and four sisters came to Massachusetts to live with their father at that time. Solomy was working at a Whole Foods in Cambridge when a friend suggested she try becoming a caregiver. She took classes to become an HHA and quickly found her rhythm and has enjoyed caring for people professionally ever since. Solomy is currently attending Northeastern University for her RN degree. Keeping in line with her thoughtful and compassionate personality, she plans to become a patient advocate in the future. Solomy is also very busy with preparations for her wedding in September. She and her fiancé will have a small wedding…just around 200 people!
When Solomy has a chance, she truly enjoys traveling all around the U.S. She has been to 20 states thus far. Some of her favorites are New York City, Chicago, and Miami, but she truly loves living in Boston and has no plans to settle anywhere else. Solomy has been a respected caregiver since she started with us and has worked with over 13 clients since she began. She has worked in some very challenging situations but has remained dedicated to helping each person to the best of her abilities.
Solomy always provides excellent senior care and shows empathy for what her clients and their families are going through. When interviewing for cases, she is very authentic and warm, immediately instilling a level of confidence in the people she will be working with and their loved ones. She approaches situations with interest asking pertinent questions and is honest about what she feels she can do to assist.
When she works with clients who have dementia, the connections she makes is always impressive. She understands how to deal effectively with elderly people with dementia by redirecting, being creative or giving them space. She is extremely respectful and treats every client with dignity. It is obvious how much value Solomy brings to their lives. Solomy is a joy to work with and always communicates her client’s needs as well as her own. She takes her work very seriously and is professional. We continue to be impressed with her dedication to elders and her ability to remain positive.
Thank you, Solomy, for your outstanding work with Visiting Angels Newton/Canton. We honor you today as our Angel of the Month. We are grateful for your kind heart and dedication and truly enjoy working with you.
