The role of a caregiver is never easily explained as it can involve so many dynamics in caring for others. This year with the pandemic affecting every aspect of our lives, the dynamics of care giving have been affected as well. There is a caregiver at Charter Senior Living in Hermitage who has gone above the expectations of her daily duties and given so much more to the residents there. Her job title doesn’t even insinuate that she is a caregiver, but her actions show otherwise. She regularly checks on the residents in the villas at Charter, brings them snacks, keeps them updated on events and has helped in making sure they have not felt completely isolated during the restrictions caused by the virus. She has organized Facebook Live music concerts for them to watch safely at home, drive-thru mask pick-ups with lunches and helpful resource information, cooking classes with their chef to make something new while stuck at home, and all this while marketing for her day job! One of the best examples was on her wedding anniversary, she and her husband spent their night delivering a delicious Italian dinner to every resident in the villas in a decorated golf cart and shared a toast and bubbles with them all! Please join me in congratulating Donna Backman as our Caregiver of the month!
