February’s Employee of the Month is Chris Quinn, who joined the Nest & Care family in 2019. He is compassionate, dedicated, and dependable. Chris is truly an asset to Nest & Care. We are so proud to have him as part of our team. When we asked our client’s husband what impact Chris had on the whole family, he said, “Family members not living close by are especially appreciative of Chris’ caring of their mother. He has become like another son in our family. All family members believe we are blessed to have Chris as a caregiver.” He also added, “We have had other caregivers and Chris is heads and shoulders above their caregiving. He performs all the tasks expected of a professional caregiver in an outstanding manner. He sees that our plants are cared for; he works with our DPT in continuing prescribed exercises. He is an excellent chef, and his salads are artistic. He works with memory exercises and communicates well with my wife. He helps with listing shopping items and sees that items needing discarding are taken care of. We couldn’t ask for having a better caregiver period!”
