Each year, Visiting Angels recognizes a caregiver that stands out for their work ethic, attitude, availability, and attendance record, just to name a few.

"All of our caregivers are exceptional people," says Arlene Petersen, owner of the South Elgin office. "Georgie stood out because of her consistent performance, providing excellent care, always receiving great feedback from her clients, and by forming positive relationships wither her clients."

"I truly enjoy helping people," Georgie shares. She enjoys the satisfaction she experiences at the end of each day, knowing she made a difference in someone's life. Working as a caregiver allows her the flexibility she needs to fit school, work, and motherhood into a busy schedule.

Recently, someone asked if she was the daughter of one of her clients. She started to explain she was a CNA from Visiting Angels, but the client interjected, "this is my adopted daughter." Experiences like this make her job as a caregiver rewarding and satisfying.

Visiting Angels provides care to adults, 18 and older in the greater Kane County and surrounding areas. For details, call Visiting Angels at (847) 429-0100.
