Caregiver Contest Runner-Up Winner: Tina B.

Congratulations to Runner-Up winner Tina B. from Broadview Heights, Ohio.

I work in an Assisted living environment, COVID-19 has changed my caregiving by teaching me patience. For me that was one thing I was not good with. 

I’ve learned to slow down with my residents and listen, I even when they may be lashing out at me because they are mad over being stuck in the building they live, and the room they sleep in for the past 6 months. I know it’s not me they are mad it, its things that they cannot control. I just look for things that we can do together to get their minds off not seeing family. Thank may mean reading a book with them, painting nails, or just sitting there and letting them talk. 

COVID-19 has changed so much for everyone. It’s time to slow down and enjoy life and spend that quality time with your family, be patient even if you think you have so many other things to do. 


Winners were selected by a panel of independent judges: Margarita Bermudez, the Manager of Professional Training and Healthcare Services at Alzheimer’s Los Angeles; Leigh Ellen Key, Executive Director for Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation, South Texas and Louisiana/Mississippi Chapters; and Kelly Sparks, a retired CWOCN from Dignity Health.
