Each month, we select one outstanding caregiver for recognition. The caregiver this award is chosen based on factors such as timeliness, professionalism, client feedback, team player, willingness to pick up shifts, etc.—all things that ultimately benefit our clients and their families.
Julian, who has been with us for 2.5 years now, received this award for many reasons. Julian is a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) who just flat out works! He is willing, and even asks, to take on last-minute shifts, even when he has other plans. The clients he cares for provide positive feedback on his ability to relate with them and the great personal care they receive. Because of his good size, people feel comfortable with him transferring them and helping them safely move around the house.
When clients are looking for a Meridian caregiver or a Boise caregiver, Julian is often top of mind for us, especially for longer 24-hour shifts. In addition to Boise and Meridian, he has provided care all around the valley, including Nampa, Eagle, Caldwell, Middleton, and Star. Home health agencies and hospice agencies have appreciated his observations on how their patients are doing in the home and how he shares any health concerns with them that he’s observed. So, hats off to this great caregiver who serves our homecare clients with such dignity and respect!
