Meet this Month's Employee Spotlight
This month’s employee spotlight, Viviana Vega is a member of Team 2, who we think is Number 1! Clients, family members and providers speak so highly of her that she is often the only one they want to speak with – even on her days off. No matter the situation, she always rises to the occasion with her exceptional work ethic. A Peer Mentor at SWCAA, she used to volunteer and assist new CM’s as they shadow her even before she received that designation. She is pursuing her master’s degree in Counseling/SW, and her optimism, happiness and overall positive attitude is an asset to our team.
The Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders serves over 2,500 older adults in southwestern CT. For Mrs. K, the program has special meaning and helps her live independently.
“There is no place like home.” It’s a feeling expressed by many of SWCAA’s participants in the Money Follows the Person Program. “This program has given me back my freedom” said Mrs. T, seen here with Supervisor Herby.
“SWCAA’s impact on Hall Senior Center is Huge! The support allows us to be there for our Senior Community everyday.”
