MONTHLY HIGH FIVE!

Congratulations to Debra Burton
Our March 2021 High Five Award Recipient!

Deb began working with Fresh Perspective Home Care in the fall of 2020. She has proven to be a great asset in many ways and provides quality care that clients compliment her on regularly. Clients request her by name, and she is always very helpful in picking up shifts when extra help is needed. Her smile is contagious, even behind her mask. She participates regularly in training as well as additional training that is available so she is able to do the best job possible for our clients. Her communication skills are just as exceptional as her attention to details when it comes to providing quality care with great dignity and respect. Congratulations Deb, we are proud to have you on our team!

MARCH IS NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH!

Meeting a Senior’s Dietary Needs

As our loved ones age, their nutritional needs change, as do their abilities to tolerate various food textures and flavors. Dexterity challenges might make it more difficult to eat foods that crumble. Swallowing issues due to stroke or Parkinson’s might make larger bites more challenging. Denture or jaw pain might make it tough to take smaller bites. Generally, our taste buds will age as well, making foods that used to be appealing seem bland or, conversely, overly spicy. Seniors left to their own devices may start to avoid the challenges of meal preparation altogether, shorting themselves on valuable nutrition.

MONTHLY HIGH FIVE!

Congratulations to Latashia May! Our January High Five Award Recipient!

Latashia joined the Fresh Perspective Home Care family 8 months ago and consistently shows a great level of compassion for helping others. She is a person who will identify a challenge and work on finding a way to help. An extraordinary example occurred in December. Latashia was aware of several families in our community that continued to struggle through the pandemic and led Fresh Perspective to organize its 1st annual food drive. Her planning, organization and leadership provided more than a dozen needy families in our community with food and household supplies. We look forward to growing this event with her in the years to come!

Latashia also brought a family especially hard hit by the pandemic and personal struggles to our attention. Because of her community involvement, Fresh Perspective was able to adopted this family and provided enough resources to ensure they had the happiest and healthiest holiday possible!

Thank you Latashia her for all you do at Fresh Perspective Home Care and within our community. You truly make a difference in the lives of others and are an outstanding example for us all!

We are also grateful for all of our team members who donated their time and resources to make the lives of these families a little bit brighter during the holidays! Thank you everyone!
