Caregiver Nanette with JEVS at Home Staff
Nanette considers herself to be very fortunate and lucky. After her mother had a stroke and her
step-father fell ill, she took on the role as their Caregiver.
“I have always been the one that my family has relied on, the one that people always came to for help,” she said. “I was kind of forcefully placed into the caregiving role, but I am not going to lie. I love caregiving.”
Nanette is outgoing, friendly, and has developed great relationships with the staff at JEVS at Home.
“Nannette is an extraordinary Caregiver. Her resilience and selflessness, through the obstacles that life has thrown at her, is truly admirable,” said Care Coordinator, Christina Gonzalez.
In May 2017, Nanette’s apartment caught on fire and burned down. She lost almost everything and was unable to work for a few weeks due to injury. To help her get back on her feet, the staff at JEVS at Home raised and donated enough money to help get her life back.
“I will never forget what they did for me. It meant the world to me that they cared this much. I will always be grateful for their generosity,” Nanette said.
