PWSA USA highlights Latham in honor of Caregiver Appreciation Day
In honor of Caregiver Appreciation Day on Friday, November 13th, PWSA | USA recognized residential counselors / direct support professionals, home health aides, nursing home attendants, and many other caregivers. “The individuals who provide care services to the PWS community are especially worthy of this small annual celebration, considering the personal, high-stakes labor invested by these compassionate professionals,” PWSA | USA wrote in their blog post. They quoted Latham’s own Patrice Carroll in their article:
“Caregiver Appreciation Day is such a meaningful way to recognize the selfless and challenging work that our staff do every day,” said Patrice Carroll, LCSW, Director of PWS Services at Latham Centers. “Latham staff members work tirelessly to provide a second home to over 100 children and adults with PWS, and they do it with love, humor, and skill. The work that we do is challenging but endlessly rewarding. Seeing children and adults with PWS achieve their goals and live full, happy lives brings great joy to me and the staff working with them. Caregiver Appreciation Day is a wonderful way to highlight the amazing people who work to bring out the best in people living with PWS.”
