The Caregiver’s Voice names June “Zoe” Kelly as the Caregiver of October.
This month marks the debut of The Caregiver’s Voice Monthly Recognition program of deserving family and professional caregivers with Zoe Kelly, a caregiver Home Care Assistance office in San Diego, California in April 2009.
- After excellent reviews from her initial assignments, she was placed in a very difficult situation in July. Zoe was assigned to take care of live-in clients, Dominic and Mary, an elderly couple living in Encinitas, California. Dominic had rapidly failing health and Mary was suffering from early dementia. A month after Zoe was assigned to the case, Dominic passed away and Zoe was confronted with assisting a grieving eighty-five-year-old widow.

- to remind us of what constitutes quality care.
- to add a little fun and a “feel-good” element.
- to help raise awareness of what caregivers endure to provide quality care.
