Creston Valley care workers are cheerful and professional

To the Editor:

Recently I had the opportunity while helping a dear friend who receives care in her home to observe the quality of home care she receives from our local care workers. These people are amazing. They are cheerful, patient, kind and professional.

Every home they go into is, of course, different. Every situation requires specific care and careful decision-making. They bustle around taking care of every detail and offering to do whatever is needed. They work hard and do it with smiles and laughter although I know the job must be at times, challenging.

Years ago, I watched the same attitude and professionalism as my mother received care in her home and later in mine. One would think that with the economy taking a downturn there would have to be a diminishment in the level of quality of care these workers provide. But not so. These individuals are taking it upon themselves to make sure their care recipients are getting smiles, love and the best of attention.

I hope the system continues to treat them with the same care they are offering to others. They certainly deserve it.

This Christmas, I saw angels.
