When I first started with home care, Dana showed me the ropes. She was patient with me as I slowly learned hands on skills she had mastered.
She helped me get through a summer working 4 caseloads and helped me weather the storm. I could not have done it without her.
We always had eventful visits. I remember vividly one visit we had with one of our favourite clients where we spent the better part of an hour trying to take off a door from a frame with stripped screws. The client had a good laugh with us too.
She made work more fun and it came alive with her. She always knew how to have fun but also work hard for her clients.
She was the stocking queen and had an eye for the right sling sizes.
She was firm with the clients who needed it and soft with the clients who needed it.
She was a hell of an assistant, and I will never forget her big heart.
She will be missed and there will be a big hole at work and huge shoes to fill.
She was a huge animal lover. I always thought she would be so well suited to an animal rehab job.
I will miss our East Indian food and Earls lunch dates.
Yuzu drinks and riesens will always make me think of her.
I will miss her contagious giggle, I will miss her crazy antics, but mostly I will just miss her.
My condolences to Dana's family and friends.
