 Aide of the Year 2015

We always find singling out just one of our many deserving Home Care aides that best

represents our agency as our Aide of the year a daunting task, and this

year was no exception. Three words come to mind when we think of this year’s

recipient, Grace, Poise, and Dignity.

This year we are honored to name HHA Kay Keltos as aide of the year for the Family and Children’s Society.

HHA Kay Keltos. Kay has worked for this agency for 24 years. Up until last year she

also provided care to another of Family & Children’s programs as well as to Home Care

working in the IHMH program. Kay does an outstanding job in her client’s home

maintaining as safe and as healthy of an environment for her client she possibly can.

She exercises keen judgment and always acts from a place of genuine compassion. If a

situation should arise with her client she will promptly notify the Nurse and office staff.

Kay has a gentle but firm way of handling her client’s which is one of the things that

made her so beneficial to both programs. She is always current with her Health

requirements and state mandated in-service. Kay is always kind and considerate

towards her clients and towards the Nurses and office staff.

We consider it a great honor to recognize Kay for her years of service to this agency

and for taking such great care of our clients.

Congratulations to Kay and thank you for all your years of faithful service and for being

such a wonderful example to all, of what Grace, Poise, and Dignity really is!
