From Left: Sallie Bongaardt, Owner Comfort Keepers Springfield PA and Klubo Barclay 2013 Comfort Keeper of Year.
A prestigious award bestowed on a caregiver who has demonstrated and fulfilled the Comfort Keepers’ mission statement throughout the year to treat clients as if they are taking care of a member of their own family. Klubo is a shining representation of all dedicated caregivers. She maintains the highest standards in care, she is a team player willing to pick up different assignments and she readily fills in for last minute call outs. Klubo is always on time, a hard worker who genuinely enjoys her clients and her clients love her back.
With a low-key demeanor, not only has she handled each challenging situation with competence, she is also able to find the special interest, hobby or activity her clients like to do. Her skill of providing interactive caregiving is unmatched and her creativity allows the client to participate at their individual level of functioning.
Clients who were depressed have reported lifted spirits looking forward to Klubo’s visits. Clients who were struggling to maintain quality in their lives have reported a renewed feeling of hope; and clients who were lonely reported finding a new friend. For Klubo being a Comfort Keeper is truly a vocation – a way to give back and make a difference. All of us at Comfort Keepers are grateful to have Klubo Barclay on our team and congratulate her on her award.
