Lexington area caregiver Brown honored for outstanding service by Home Instead Senior Care

The Home Instead Senior Care office serving the greater Lexington area is honored to highlight Mary Brown as an exemplary caregiver in our region.

Brown’s personal story is just as inspiring as the care she provides to her elderly clients. Her parents helped Brown form a strong value system from a young age, and she went on to devote her career to serving others as a social worker. This career included 25 years at a local adoption agency, where she was known for her dedication to serving children in need, and she worked her way to lead the organization as its Director.

This lifetime of compassion eventually led her to take a new path to care for the elderly, and she joined Home Instead Senior Care at the age of 60.

Home Instead Senior Care is the country’s largest provider of in-home senior care services. Home Instead caregivers, known as CAREGivers, help seniors live independently, bringing companionship while encouraging seniors to continue enjoying the comforts of home.

“It’s an honor to be able to recognize Mary for all that she has done and continues to do for the seniors she serves. They often refer to her as part of the ‘family,’ and so do we,” said Rich Berube, owner of the Home Instead office where Brown has worked for nearly seven years. “We’re always looking for caring individuals like Mary to expand our team of professional caregivers, and it’s such a rewarding opportunity that brings happiness and joy to our community of seniors.”

Many of the clients Home Instead CAREGivers serve are living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia, which impacts over 5 million Americans. Alzheimer’s disease is often a life-altering experience for the estimated 15 million friends, families and loved ones providing their care while also working to juggle a career, raising children and maintaining their own health.

CAREGivers like Mary Brown have the opportunity to participate in specialized training programs to meet the unique care needs of those living with Alzheimer’s disease.

“I truly find caring to be my calling. Seeing the smiles on my client’s faces and knowing I am helping their families keeps me inspired,” said Brown. “It’s a humbling experience to be recognized for your work, and I am grateful for the rewarding experiences I have each day.”

Brown also hopes her story will inspire others to serve the elderly and the needy. To learn more, contact your local Home Instead Senior Care by visiting https://www.homeinstead.com/312/ or calling (859) 273-0085.
