Amy treats the families of the patient with the same compassion and is a highly requested Care Professional. Amy also assists in training other home health aides in her office best techniques to use when working with late stage Alzheimer's patients.

She is always ready and willing to fill in where need whether it's to fill an unexpected scheduling needs, resolving client issues, relaying clinical calls to on call nurses and more. Her clients and co-workers appreciate her dedication and strive for excellence.

Always looking for new challenges, Amy has taken it upon herself to become more familiar with different payor sources and the office's process of scheduling. Amy has recently taken on a new responsibility, doing Emergency Response System (ERS) installations. Being a quick learner and good decision maker has certainly contributed to her success.
