JEVS at Home Caregiver, Susan McLeod
Susan McLeod stepped into the caregiving world by accident. Her mother fell ill and she and her siblings decided she would be the best one to care for her.
“I learned a lot from her working one-on-one with her and still do,” Susan said.
After caring for her mother, Susan decided to stay on with JEVS at Home as a Caregiver. When she started working with non-family member consumers, the gratitude and happiness shown by them made her feel that this job was more than a paycheck. It was fulfilling and rewarding.
“It feels great to reassure someone that they can be comfortable in their home,” she said.
When asked what Susan loves most about being a Caregiver she said, “Working with the elderly is like working with a book of knowledge just waiting for you to tap into it! I’ve learned a lot from all of my consumers over the years and I’ve always been drawn to older people, it just feels natural to me.”
Susan’s work ethic is often shown in the eyes of her consumer and JEVS at Home. She was recently nominated for the JAH “You Rock Award” by her Care Coordinator, Regina. This award is an internal recognition program that recognizes exceptional care.
“Susan’s dedication to providing excellent care and willingness to go above and beyond makes her such an outstanding caregiver that is loved by everyone she comes in contact with,” said Regina.
