Sylwia, one of our outstanding carers, has been awarded Carer of the Month.
Sylwia has been a caring for a Trinity Homecare client for two years. Since starting to care for our client, she has worked hard to improve our client’s physical and mental condition.
Client Ms S was bed bound and unable to move her hands or communicate her needs verbally. Understandably it was very frustrating for Ms S. Over time and with much patience, Sylwia has built a good relationship with Ms S and her family. Sylwia has made changes to Ms S’s diet for the better, providing a well-balanced diet full of fruit and vegetables with homemade juice and smoothies.
Sylwia has also carried out simple daily exercises with Ms S and now she can move her hands, has become talkative, is alert, and loves her carer’s company. The frustration Ms S had has now disappeared and she is so much happy in herself. She has started singing songs proving she can remember the words and tunes of her favourite singer’s songs; all thanks to Sylwia.
Sylwia and Ms S have a great fun and laugh a lot, watching movies and cartoons. The routine they have created works well for Ms S. It makes her happy and feel loved.
The client’s GP has complemented Sylwia for the improvements made in the quality of Ms S’ life and condition. Her hard work has also been also recognised by the family.
The client’s house has been refurbished, painted and flooring changed, Ms S now lives in a clean, well looked after place. She also has a better self-care routine too, having regular hairdresser appointments and has her nails done.
Care Manager Jola praised Sylwia, saying:
“Sylwia is an amazing live-in carer, she has really turned around Ms S’s life. The transformation is marvellous. Ms S is so much happier which is a joy to see. I am very pleased that Sylwia has been recognised for her great caring work, congratulations, very much deserved!”
