In celebration of Home Care Aide Week, we would like to share a little bit about our patient Hudson and his Aveanna aide, Danni.
When his previous caregiver could no longer work with him, Hudson was devastated. For Hudson, who has Autism Spectrum Disorder and ADHD, meeting someone new is always difficult and stressful. He was hesitant to meet a new aide. But then his Aveanna team introduced him to Home Health Aide Danni.
After just a few shifts, Danni and Hudson became the best of friends. For the past fourteen months, Hudson has relied on Danni for all of his activities of daily living. They go for walks in the neighborhood, play interactive games, prepare meals, and go over important safety lessons for Hudson.
Danni’s care and compassion have helped Hudson stay safe and healthy and overcome anxiety in new situations. Danni says that during all the time he has spent with Hudson, he has learned how to be more patient. He teaches Hudson, and Hudson teaches him in return.
Thank you, Danni, for your life-changing dedication and care for your patients. Happy Home Care Aide Week!
