South Shore Home Health Services Nominates Caregiver of the Year 2010
South Shore Home Health is proud to recognize Diana Rodriquez, HHA as our 2010 Caregiver of the Year. In the past 9 years she has proven herself to be compassionate, skillful and professional. Several years ago she accepted the challenge to provide care for a patient who only spoke Italian. These two women came together and were able to transcend all language barriers so that one truly dedicated aide and one patient created a bond that lasted 5 years. Recently this patient passed on, and her son stated “My mother was very skeptical about a stranger coming into her home but Diana erased all her fears and supported her to the end. Diana is a shining example of all the good that Home care can provide. Diana, We Thank you.
