Brenda, you did a fantastic job with S.B. Your approach was person centered and despite all the difficult twists and turns of this case you stayed true to S.B. Her last years were better in no small measure because of your efforts. I am so proud to serve with you. Thank you so much!
To Karen and Rhenee, Thank you both for your valuable time and patience with me. You eased my discomfort with the ‘system’ and made it fun. It looks like you solved my dilemma within one hour.
This is a difficult case and her work has made this Vermonter’s life so much better.
You are truly a life-saving ‘warrior.’ Please continue to do what you do so well.
One person at a time, you have made the lives of older Vermonters better with support and companionship. The services you provide are part of being in a caring network to support Central Vermonters. Every single day our volunteers make a significant difference in the lives of others.
