May Caregiver of the Month: Judith Okech

Judith Okech is the most amazing woman, we love having her with my mom each day. Having Judith gives me a sense of peace knowing she is caring for my mother.

She has been with my mother since November of 2015. We started out at Sterling Estates assisted living and then moved to the Georgian Lakeside memory care. My mother has dementia and continues to decline, but Judith manages her every needs with grace, compassion and love.

She goes above and beyond to make sure my mother is cared for, clean, enjoying herself and that her place is beautiful and maintained. Judith takes such pride in her work and brings joy to all those around her. She is always happy and radiates with a positive, happy vibe which is so desperately needed in Memory Care. Everyone at the Georgian Lakeside loves Judith, the staff and the other residents enjoy her company.

At her request, she wanted me to take my mom out of the building at least once a week to get fresh air and have a new environment, so we started taking my mom to lunch weekly. This is a very difficult task since my mom uses a walker and forgets how to walk sometimes, and at time she is in a wheelchair; but, with Judith we can conquer anything.

Judith helps me with all her doctor appointments and I honestly could not handle the doctor visits without the help and mental support. Judith is my angel, my gift from GOD to help me care for my mom in the best way possible, I am so blessed we found her.

Thank You CaraVita and Nancy Marvin for suggesting Judith. We love her!
