We are pleased to announce that Wieslaw “Wes” Karatnik is EasyLiving’s Inspirational Caregiver for August.
Wes has been with EasyLiving for almost four years and goes above and beyond in his home caregiver duties. Our team receives great feedback on Wes and the work he does for the clients and families he serves. His duties for one family have included providing travel concierge services so that the client could continue to travel and stay connected with his family up north.
As the client’s son shares, “Wes is great with my father, he is a smart caregiver that knows how to work with my father. His level of concern goes beyond the day-to-day, he thinks of his future, his health and overall well being. He is fully invested in his care and it’s extremely refreshing. We are grateful that he sacrifices his own time to travel with my father up north so he can see his family, that is something we couldn’t have accomplished without Wes’ dedication and it means the world to us. As a family we are all very fond of Wes and we congratulate him on this very deserving award.”
