2020 Caregiver of the Year

Each year Lakeland Care highlights a “Provider/Caregiver of the Year Award” to one provider who has consistently shown an exceptional level of C.A.R.E. and quality service over the past year. In 2020 we are excited to announce that the nominee for this award was Robert and Judith Mahlstedt AFH.

A Lakeland Care member who has lived with Bob and Judy for almost 20 years, recently had to be admitted to a nursing home for rehab. Bob and Judy have gone above and beyond to ensure that her needs are being met, and the nursing home staff have a better understanding of who she is. Due to COVID-19, they are unable to visit her face-to-face, so they worked with the nursing home to set up a video call. Being able to see them, as well as her long-term housemates really helped perk our member up. Bob and Judy are so much more than just providers or caregivers to our members who live with them. They work tirelessly to provide a loving, compassionate, and nurturing environment for the women in their care. They are also fierce advocates for the health and wellbeing of each woman. Words cannot express how thankful Lakeland Care is that our member and her housemates have you in their lives.
