A Local Hometown Hero

This month’s Caregiver Spotlight honors Barbara Bryson from Home Care Assistance of Southern New Jersey for her professionalism, compassion and dedication to her client. Barb has been in the health care field for over 20 years and she has been a Certified Home Health Aide for over 16 years.

Barb’s stays with her client Nancy five days a week. Nancy is unable to effectively verbalize her thoughts and ideas due to the effects of a brain tumor and stroke. The two have built such a strong bond that Barb is now able to anticipate most of Nancy’s needs before they arise. Speaking on behalf of the family, Nancy’s daughter Jane says:

"Barb is an absolute gem. Not only is she reliable, caring and compassionate, but she is truly a wonderful person. She is very respectful of my home which is very important when you have someone in your home every day. Barb has become as close to a family member as we could hope for."

Barb provides daily companionship to Nancy and accompanies her on appointments and other trips outside the home. She has happily agreed to stay overnight at the home when Jane needs to travel for business. In addition to the great bond Barb has formed with Nancy and her family, she has also found a new friend in their dog Petey!

Thank you, Barbara, for all your hard work! You are an inspiration to us all.
