Woodlands, TX - September 22, 2016 - (PR.com) - Kelly Britton, owner and operator of Always Best Care Senior Services of The Woodlands, Texas, is pleased to announce that caregiver Joshlyn Smith has been awarded the company's nationwide Caregiver of the Year honor, which is bestowed annually upon the top caregiver from among hundreds of applicants throughout the United States. Smith, who has been employed by the company since its Woodlands area branch was established two years ago, was recognized by a special committee that convened to assess the attributes and skills presented by applicants from across Always Best Care's various U.S. franchise locations. She was chosen to receive the honor because of her special combination of skill, expertise and natural ability with clients requiring in-home care.
Each year, Always Best Care Senior Services, a provider of compassionate in-home care for clients across the United States, names one individual as their "Caregiver of the Year." The latest person to be given this honor is Joshlyn Smith, who represents the company's Woodlands, TX, location. Smith, who has been a caregiver with the Woodlands, TX branch since its inception in 2014, had previously been honored as regional "Caregiver of the Year."
As part of the award, Smith received a trophy and a $1,000 bonus check. She was also honored in a small ceremony, locally, and will be officially recognized at the company's corporate conference, which will be held next year.
According to franchise owner Kelly Britton, who was also honored by being named the company's "Rookie of the Year," Smith brings numerous attributes to her job, including a natural ability to sense what clients require. Britton also noted that Smith has a special ability to motivate clients to go about their day-to-day lives with enthusiasm and positivity. Moreover, the company has focused on using Smith as a trainer for new caregivers, so that she can impart her wisdom and knowledge of caregiving best practices to her colleagues, which benefits the local franchise, as well as the community as a whole.
“Joshlyn is very creative and sensitive to whatever the situation may require. She's very intuitive about client needs and brings a positive, enthusiastic attitude with her every day on the job.
