Sophie Keyes and Brenda Santiago-Akin are Tougher than 2020!
There is nothing better in our work than celebrating the relationship between a care receiver and a caregiver.
Here is what our franchise partner Debra Lang (NY) has to say about Sophie and Brenda:
Meet our care receiver, Sophie Keyes (left in the photo above), and caregiver Brenda Santiago-Akin (right)!
These ladies have formed a wonderful relationship during the pandemic - a situation that has made it impossible for Sophie's children to visit her from California and New Mexico. She is missing them terribly.
As a natural caregiver, Brenda regularly provides all the day to day assistance required so that Sophie can continue to live safely and happily in her own home. What makes Brenda extra special is that she recognized something that was equally crucial to Sophie's well-being.....the ability to "see" her children!
What did Brenda do? She brought her iPad from home and set up Face Time video calling for Sophie to visit with her kids! Brenda took great joy in seeing the expression on Sophie's fact the first time she saw her son and then her daughter!
What a difference this small but priceless kindness made in the lives of Sophie and her children!
We are so fortunate to have Sophie and Brenda as part of our community!
Thank you, Debra, for sharing this wonderful story.
Sophie and Brenda, we thank you and celebrate you for being Tougher than 2020!
