Siteri is a True Gift!

Posted on May 5th, by Mark Winter in OUR Caregivers. No Comments

All of us at Hired Hands are ecstatic to acknowledge Siteri as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!  Siteri is pictured here with our wonderful client Suki. Siteri has an amazing calm and caring demeanor when interacting Suki, which really makes the day go nicely!

We’re quite happy that Siteri was very pleased to receive this award and recognition. When she first started with us, she said she was nervous to make a change to our Team because she didn’t know anyone that worked here.  That didn’t last long, and Siteri now states that joining HH was the best decision she has ever made!

Hey Siteri, what do you have to say for yourself ?..

“Hired Hands is like family to me and the clients are an extension of that family. I have worked for other agencies and companies but never one as … Read More »

The team at Hired Hands Homecare is proud to recognize Julianne as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!  We have actually only had the opportunity to work with Julianne for about five months so far, but in that short time, she has proven to be quite a star!  In fact, one of her most compelling talents is to WOW some of our most particular clients!  Her amazing smile and personality seem to be able to win just about anyone over… and we greatly enjoy working with her.  In fact, Ms. H, one of our MOST particular clients recently commented that Julianne is the Best of the Best, and thanked us profusely for finding her a perfect match.

Congratulations Julianne – it is a pleasure to work with you, and thanks for all you do!

Please join us in congratulating Kelera AKA ” Lela” for being selected as Hired Hands’ latest Caregiver of the Month!  We have had the absolute pleasure of working with Lela for over three years now, and every day, she simply raises the bar for quality care.  In those three short years, this is actually her THIRD time being honored!

The team at Hired Hands Homecare is proud to acknowledge Lilia C as our Caregiver of the Month!  We recently surprised her as we visited her on shift with our clients, Amelie and Gratien. They were so pleased to share in the celebration and noted that Lilia has really raised the bar for their care!

Lilia has worked for Hired Hands since 2017 (SIX years!) and is a highly skilled Caregiver, being a proud member of both our specialized Dementia and Hospice Teams.  She is so dependable and flexible and willing to help in any way, and she is often requested by name.  This is actually the second time Lilia has been honored with this award and she truly deserves it!

Hired Hands Homecare is proud to announce Gloria as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!

Gloria has been with us only about six months, but in that time, she has done nothing but impress!  Every client and family that she has worked with has given her great compliments!  On top of that, Gloria has been super helpful to pick up extra shifts when our clients needed extra assistance, often working 7 days in a row… simply to make sure everyone is well cared for!  All in all, Gloria is honestly one of the sweetest humans we have ever met!

Gloria, THANK YOU for being you!  It is a pleasure and honor to have you on the Hired Hands Homecare Team!


Congratulations Amelie! Here’s Looking Forward to Each Day!

Hired Hands Homecare is proud to honor Amelie as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!

Amelie is a real delight and such a kind soul.  She was brand new to the Senior Care profession, and has now been with Hired Hands for about nine months. Her older sister Azure referred her to us, knowing that she had the compassion and reliability to make an excellent Caregiver.  In her relatively short time with us, she has learned quite a lot, and continues to grow with us. While this may be her first “real job”, you would not know it, as she is regularly punctual, reliable, responsible and a great communicator.

Our clients love Amelie because she is a great companion and allows our clients to maintain their dignity and independence while residing in their private homes.  Safe and happy at home is … Read More »

Sarah is a Shining Star!

Today, we are honored to recognize Sarah F as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!   Sarah joined the Hired Hands Homecare team just a few months ago, but has been amazing since day one.  She is always patient and professional, willing to jump in at the last minute to help when needed, and as her Clients have expressed… “extra caring”!  Recently, a family noted “We LOVE Sarah!  She is exactly the kind of Caregiver we have always wanted.  She is really engaging with Mom, is very safety conscious, super friendly, and keeps Mom mentally active and happy!”
