Sam was a trusted and loving caregiver to my mother while at the Madrona House on Bainbridge Island. You quickly recognize those with a natural talent for this often challenging, but rewarding position. I personally witnessed how she approached my mother and all residents with compassion and care. The ability to guide residents with kindness and make them feel in control and at ease is a gift – one that comes naturally with Sam.
I watched her look into my mother’s eyes and tell her how they could tackle the daunting task together. My mother felt supported and trusted her guidance.
