We are so excited to announce that Cindy Lauture Jean Jacques is our new Caregiver of the Month. Cindy has been a caregiver for close to seven years. She originally got into the field to become a nurse and obtaining her CNA license was the first step. This allowed her to learn English and begin providing home care. She really enjoys working with the clients and being a companion. She loves helping people and she finds that it’s easy to get along with her clients. Two elderly sisters who were clients called her Little Sister, making her part of their family.
It can sometimes be difficult when unexpected things arise and she needs to manage it all. She says that she does the best she can and puts her client’s safety and comfort first. Typically, she helps her clients with their activities of daily living and makes sure that they are comfortable throughout the day.
Cindy really enjoys working at SYNERGY and feels that every employee is taken care of. She says that she is informed ahead of time about the client and after every first shift, the office checks in to see if things are working out or if any changes need to be made.
If someone wants to become a caregiver, Cindy says it’s really important to love people and get along with people. She has had many good moments with her clients, but one in particular didn’t even feel like work. She cared for one woman after a surgery and she really enjoyed her time with this woman. She was a companion for the client and helped her walk and get dressed. It was a very relaxing environment and it almost felt like she was “on vacation” because she enjoyed her time so much.
We are so lucky to have Cindy as a part of our care team. Congratulations on this well-deserved honor!
