Announcing BrightStar Care of Summit/Westfield January’s Caregiver of the Month, Mary Adamsemployee of month

Mary has truly exemplified what it means to be a BrightStar Care Employee by continuously demonstrating BrightStar Care’s Core Values.  Our Core Values state to “be open and Positive, serve with passion, do the right thing, do what you say, and make it great”. Mary Adams started working with BrightStar Care in 2013.  Since 2013, she has touched the lives of all of her clients and their families, truly going above and beyond her role as a Certified Home Health Aide.  In January, Mary superseded herself while taking a last minute case.  We called Mary and asked her to fill in for another caregiver.  When the permanent caregiver was gone her client took a sudden turn for the worse.  Mary stepped in immediately and stayed far beyond her scheduled shift.  Mary came back during the evening hours to stay awake with the client and our Director of Nursing overnight to attend to any of her client’s needs.  “I would describe Mary Adams as, dependable, conscientious, and goes above and beyond” states, Kathleen Peterson; Director of Nursing. We appreciate all the hard work and dedication Mary has demonstrated while working for BrightStar Care.  We are proud to have her as an employee of our agency. Keep up the good work, Mary!   BrightStar Care of Summit and Westfield proudly provides Home Care and Support for Seniors, including 24 hour in home care and support in independent and assisted living communities.
