Feedback About This Caregiver:

During a devastating ice and snow storm in Oct, 2012, where most electricity and heat in Western Mass was out, Shirley continued to take care of her clients in an Independent community by providing blankets, sweaters and companionship throughout the ordeal. She worked around the clock and was very helpful to other residents who were in need of assistance.
