Massachusetts Family Caregiver Wins Award

Anna Gauthier, a family caregiver in Caregiver Homes, Seniorlink's intensive care management model, recently won the Community Living Recognition Award at the 24th annual Shared Living & Adult Family Care Conference. Nominated by her care team, Anna cares for her special needs brother as well as her elderly father and manages their complex health issues.

"Anna’s determination, humor and dedication are used to the best interest and well-being of her brother and father. She's inspirational," says her care team. "Their home is immaculate and cheerful; she works diligently to manage both her father and brother's challenging behaviors with little to no recognition." 

Caregivers such as Anna in the Adult Family Care program assist with bathing, dressing, grooming and other activities of daily living as well as coordinating their unique health care needs while maintaining their household. Due to Anna’s exceptional care, she's able to keep both her father and brother safe and at home as members of the community. 

Congratulations Anna! We're appreciative of all the hard work you do.
