About a year and a half ago, Carolyn Gadson, one of Coastal Home Care’s most beloved PCAs, had to take an unexpected leave of absence. Today, to the absolute delight of everyone who knows her, Carolyn is back and ready to start working with all of the people she missed so much during her leave.
Growing up, Carolyn always knew she wanted to be a caretaker and started her career with another homecare firm. Sixteen years ago Carolyn’s niece, who was in high school at the time, told her to put in an application for a PCA position at Coastal Home Care. Starting as a part-time caretaker Carolyn loved everything about working for Coastal, from the way “they do things right” to every client she worked with and quickly made the decision to make her career at Coastal Home Care a fulltime endeavor.
The first thing you notice about Carolyn is her bright, beautiful smile and how contagious it is! Thanks to her young niece’s advice, Carolyn has been spreading smiles to everyone she comes in contact with, whether it be a client, a staff member or a coworker, ever since. There’s an immediate sense of what her clients love above her and, after spending just a few minutes with Carolyn, you fully understand how much happiness she brings into their lives and homes at every visit (and why they request her every time!).
Carolyn says, “I love what I do. The best part is being able to make the lives of my clients easier- helping them. I never mind going the extra mile because putting smiles on their faces brings joy to my heart.”
We know Carolyn’s clients are going to be just as ecstatic to have her back as her Coastal Home Care family is! Here’s to the next sixteen years of enriching lives and spreading smiles- we’re so glad you’re back, Carolyn!
