Rose Ritz is a retired registered nurse who could have easily stayed home and enjoyed her retirement but Rose chooses every day to make a difference in the life of one our clients and his or her family. From learning her client’s interests and engaging them in their care to compassionately listening to family members who struggle to care for an aging loved one, Rose continually fulfills the mission of Comfort Keepers to treat every client as if he or she was a member of our own family. Every client Rose has helped has commented on her kindness and compassion. One family member wrote “Rose is the most generous and kind person I ever met. My mother looks forward to seeing her everyday. She gives 100% to her clients and for that I will always be grateful. I could never express how important she is in our lives. Rose is the best.” For continually being present with her clients, engaging them to participate in life and for her dedication and loyalty, Comfort Keepers is proud to announce, Rose Ritz, Comfort Keeper of the Year 2009.
