As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child. We have a great team of staff members with a mix of experienced "veterans" and talented "rookies".
I'm proud of the commitment level our staff has demonstrated over the past two years. The vast majority of this time we’ve been operating with academic classes from home. Without that “break” during normal school hours opportunities for staff meetings, training, cleaning and organizing have been very limited. We needed to adjust. That was done by involving the kids and teens in these tasks and responsibilities.
As our residents are ramping up their in-person classes in their public schools, I wanted to take an opportunity to applaud the work of our Caregivers.
Our home is operated with 15 Caregivers working around the clock on 3 fixed shifts. Each works 8-hour shifts, 6-days a week. It’s really beautiful to have a group of mixed personalities as it allows our residents to make special bonds with the adult, they gravitate towards most. These mentor relationships contribute to a sense of safety and consequently the opportunity to expedite the healing of traumatic wounds.
Your contributions are vital to the fundamental work of the Caregivers of Casa Hogar. Thank you very much for caring!
