June is also National Safety Month. Safety comes in many forms. This month, I want to stress the importance of safety in the workplace, starting with proper attire. Per our employee handbook, closed-toed sneakers or non-slip shoes should be worn while on a shift. Personal care attendants are to wear scrubs; homemakers and companions are to wear khaki or dark colored pants and appropriate tops (no tank tops). Caregivers also should wear their name tags. Proper shoes will help prevent injury; proper attire and wearing name badges will identify you as professionals. We appreciate all your hard work and dedication to our clients and our elders. Stay safe! ~ Lisa Gradzewicz
I used the Uber app to book a ride, and the driver arrived shortly thereafter. Unsure where to sit, I hopped in the front seat. As we started off, the driver started to make unwelcome advances toward me, touching my hand, and then my leg. I slapped his hand away and demanded he stop the car. I got out and walked the rest of the way home; thankfully it wasn’t too far. I say this not to put down Uber, it is a great service; I say this as a reminder: be aware of your surroundings and trust your instincts. Be sure ride in the back seat when taking Uber or a taxi. Your safety comes first!
