 Aide of the Quarter 

Congratulations to Personal Care Aide Rachel Donato who has been chosen as our Aide of the 2nd Quarter for 2014. Rachel has worked for the agency since July 2013. From the first day Rachel came to work in home care, she became the primary aide for a client that would soon require 24 hour care. We literally threw her right in the deep end and she became an incredibly strong swimmer! The family has said, “Rachel does an exceptional job taking care of mom; she does the brunt of the work and she has never complained once...” Rachel is a wonderful asset and representative of the quality of the home care work that comes from Family & Children’s. Congratulations Rachel!!
