Trusting people isn't always easy (or wise, admittedly), especially with something as personal as hygiene. But our most recent hero has both proven herself trustworthy and earned the trust of residents at Liberty House in Fond du Lac - especially a particular resident.
This particular resident is not keen on showering. But Gigi, a caregiver at Liberty House, has invested the time in getting to know the resident, talking to her, and spending time with her. Because of that, Gigi is one of the only caregivers that the resident will accept a shower from.
And just like every once in a while when you decide to get extra primped, sometimes Gigi will spend extra time curling the resident's hair and doing her nails, resulting in all smiles the rest of the day.
Gigi built trust with the resident through our values of "have fun" and "love others." And it makes all the difference.
