Caregiver of the Month

Congratulations to our latest Caregiver of the Month, Rebecca!
"My favourite thing about working with Comforts of Home - Care is listening to the stories from 'yesteryears.' Talking with a client who is 80 or 90 years old can be so fascinating as they tell stories of times that I have only read about in history books.

I love when a client starts a sentence with, 'When I was a kid...' Regardless of whether they end up talking food prices or travel or war or their school days or their family, it is always riveting."
Rebecca loves animals, reading, really old cars, and being outdoors—whether it's hiking, camping, canoeing, dirt biking, skiing, or shoeing. She is deeply dedicated to her clients and a joy to work with!
Thank you, Rebecca, for all that you do and for the wonderful care you give to seniors!
