Caring for those with Alzheimer’s requires a very special set of skills. At times it can be stressful, tiring, physically demanding, and emotionally exhausting. When aCremation received a nomination for not one but two special women that have dedicated themselves to caring for these special patients, we couldn’t resist. We had our first double award winner.

Susie Jones, Memory Care Director, and Nana Essi, Professional Caregiver, received aCremation’s Dedicated Caregiver of the Month awards for April and May. They work at Brookdale at Stonebridge Ranch in McKinney, Texas. The monthly award recognizes caregivers that make a difference in the lives of the patients and families they serve.

The family entrusted their loved one, Linda, into Brookdale’s (formerly Emeritus) care for 15 months. During that time they were able to watch and interact with Susie and Nana as they cared for Linda. They were able to see how these two special people treated not just their loved one, but all of the residents in their care.

“They were unfailingly kind and professional, but further than that, it was obvious they not only cared for her, but also cared about her,” said the family. They went on to share that Susie and Nana’s ability to work with, care for, joke with, gently coax, and get the best results out of all the residents, day-in and day-out, without ever losing their calm and caring demeanor was nothing short of amazing.

What a special gift Susie and Nana provide to the McKinney community.
