August Star of the Month - Kathy Dunderdale

Home Instead Charnwood are so proud of their expanding CareGiver team each month it becomes harder to select who is outstanding and should receive star of the month, they truly are - all stars. However, having received recognition and appreciation from their client (Mr X), the client’s family and us in the Charnwood office Kathy Dunderdale deserves this August title and a £20 M&S voucher as star of the month.

Kathy having recently been introduced to Mr X who has dementia –  has worked her magic and taken her culinary skills over each day in order to make him home cooked meals, going over and above the care expectations – our client has started to put weight on and look far healthier his family has noticed and old clothes, once too big, are now fitting again. In addition to eating – Kathy has coaxed Mr X into soaking in the bath tub regularly. As any one will know who has a loved one struggling with dementia – daily tasks such as washing and eating properly can become a struggle and dementia suffers simple forget how to, or when they last ate / washed and even when extreme how to feed and wash themselves.

Kathy really has made a difference and helped to improve Mr X’s life – at Home Instead Charnwood we endeavour to go over and above ‘just care’ and our mission is to make a difference and enrich the lives of everyone we encounter. Well done and thank you Kathy from all of us.
