Every month, we take some time to highlight one of our amazing employees! This month, our employee highlight is of Jan W.., a caregiver based out of our Waite Park/St. Cloud location.
Jan is a Home Economics Hero. She loves to craft, bake, raise her two Papillon pups, and spend time with her four grandchildren.
Jan became a caregiver because she’s cared for others her whole life. She cared for her mother, has worked with dual-diagnosed adults, and took care of her two granddaughters who have SMA, a form of muscular dystrophy.
Jan loves to be a shoulder to lean on, to provide a safe person to talk to. She loves helping her clients feel independent, make their own decisions and keep them in their home as long as possible.
She says her greatest accomplishment is winning the trust of a client who didn’t want help of any form:
“There are always steps forward and backward, but being there for her is a great feeling.”
