November is National Caregiver Appreciation Month, a time for us at Open Arms to show our,
At Open Arms Solutions, we are incredibly grateful for our amazing caregivers every single day! November marks National Caregiver Appreciation Month & our team wants to share our appreciation for our exceptional caregivers.
Our Care Coordination supervisors, Katrina Betts & Shari Capaldi, wanted to thank our caregivers in their own words:
I would like to reach out and personally thank all the wonderful caregivers that work for Open Arms. As a previous caregiver, I know the job is not easy and it truly comes from the heart. I love hearing stories of your creativity with your clients just to bring them joy, your conversations with your clients and their families revealing things about your client that weren’t known before and how some of you don’t even feel like this is a job. Instead, that you are going to spend time with a close friend. It is so heartwarming to know that our clients are cared for as if they are family and to see the connections and relationships grow every visit I make. I thank each and every one of you for all the hard work you put in to physically, mentally and emotionally take care of your clients, I hope you know how much you are appreciated!

There is a great quote by Rosalyn Carter that says, “There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who currently are caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.” This month is officially Caregiver Appreciation Month, but we shouldn’t have to wait until this time of year to show our appreciation and gratitude for everything our devoted and committed caregivers do on a daily basis. Your job is tough, yet you continue to provide constant support and show endless strength for your clients who have come to depend on you. You may never really know how much your caring matters, and you may never know how much of a difference you’ve made. Not everyone can do what you do. It takes a special person with special gifts. You have a gift to not only see your clients for what they can do now, but to see them as the wonderful people they are. You have a gift to find patience when you think you don’t have any left. You have a gift to help people find their purpose when they feel they may have lost it. Your kindness can transform lives, and for that we all say thank you!
