At Visiting Angels of Northern Arizona, our care specialists (caregivers) are everything to our clients – and to us. Each month the team votes for the Shining Star of the month. The angel that goes above and beyond. At the end of the year, those 12 shining stars are voted on by the staff and input from our clients. For 2020 the Care Specialist of the Year is Mary Taylor from the greater Prescott region.
These are a few comments from Mary’s clients. “Mary is such a joy and so inspiring especially when I am having a challenging day”. Another client told us, “If Jesus had decided to select women as his 12 apostles, Mary would certainly be one of the chosen 12”. And finally, this client stated, “Mary was with us for almost two years. She became a friend and a family member not only to me but the entire family”.
Mary goes on to compete nationally with the other 600 locations of Visiting Angels for the coveted award. Mary received a $1000.00 check from Katrina Poole Care Director and Larri Lyn Stell Care Leader for Visiting Angels of Northern Arizona.
