Note from a client’s power of attorney & cousin

I wanted to write to you and let you know what a hard-working, caring, and competent employee you have in Shana. As you probably know, she is coordinating the care for Allan. I am his cousin and medical power of attorney, and I live in California, so it is difficult to make on the spot assessments and decisions.

Shana has gone above and beyond the call of duty, as Allan has been hospitalized and now is in rehab. Shana has been in touch with the Doctors, social workers, and discharge planners. She has been reassuring and a problem solver related to getting Allan’s long term care insurance in place, getting someone to deal with his medications, and keeping me informed about glitches along the way. 

I am so grateful for her presence, and hope that Allan will be able to return home, with his caregivers soon.
