Today we would like to introduce Home Health Aide Marcia and her Aveanna patient Isamia. Marcia is an incredible caregiver with amazing compassion and care. We asked Marcia to share with us what it’s like to be the caregiver for Isamia.
When we asked Marcia what it’s like to be Isamia’s Aveanna caregiver, she said, “It’s always a pleasure working with Isamia, or Mimi as we like to call her. I love caring for her because I have the knowledge about Mimi’s medical condition that I need to give her the best care.
“During my shifts with Mimi, I encourage her to be independent in her daily activities. I teach her how to wash her hands, dress and undress, feed herself, and say ‘thank you’ when I give her something to eat. She has a good appetite and rarely refuses anything I give her.
“Mimi is a very loving and happy child. She loves when I hug her and is always smiling. I really enjoy caring for Mimi. She has become like family to me.”
Thank you for sharing those beautiful words, Marcia. We are so glad to have you in the Aveanna family.
