On June 22, 2010 Kathy Montijo of Comfort Keepers was presented with a COSA Direct Caregiver of the Year Award, the COSA Advisory Council Award for outstanding caregiving and exemplary personal attributes displayed while providing care in the homes of many elderly clients in Delaware County.
Although Kathy herself suffered much personal loss since October of 2009, first losing her own 22 year old daughter and one month later the passing of her mother, Kathy continued to care for her clients as if they were members of her own family. Her compassion and patience earned her the Direct Caregiver of the Year Award presented by Bruce Wyman of the COSA Advisory Council and Louis Colbert, Director of COSA.
The awards took place at Drexelbrook Center in Drexel Hill, PA on June 22, 2010. This is the 4th COSA Direct Caregiver of the Year Award Comfort Keepers has earned. Rose Ritz won the John F. Bauer Award in 2006, Jackie Albert won the John F. Bauer Award in 2007 and Helen Nowell, the Barbara White Award in 2008. To read more about these wonderful award winning caregivers, click HERE.
