Home Care in Melville NY
As radiant as the lights pictured behind her, Grace Okyere has been a Shining Star at Star Multi Care Services since 2008. Recently named, the Star Employee of the Year by the New York office staff, she was nominated due to the high quality of her performance as a Home Health Aide.
Grace says that she became a Home Health Aide after moving to the United States from Ghana, Africa 23 years ago. She was one of eight children and took the lead on her father’s care after he suffered a stroke. She wanted to continue in a profession which allowed her to use her care giving talents.
Grace seems to take the lead on everything she does as she has been blessed with many talents. In addition to the exemplary dedication and quality care she provides to her clients, she is a talented singer and acoustic guitar player. In her spare time she enjoys going to church and Broadway shows in Manhattan.
While waiting for a train in New York, she struck up a conversation about home care agencies with a woman who recommended Star Multi Care as they were one of the few agencies providing health insurance. Grace applied immediately and she has been a Shining Star ever since.
The Star Employee of the Year Program was created from the Star Employee of the Month Program which is the Company’s way of recognizing individual employees with exemplary work performance. A nomination must be made by a co-worker, supervisor or client and each month nominee submissions are reviewed and deliberated. Once selected, the Employee of the Month receives a certificate, monetary award and a personalized letter from the President/CEO of the company, Stephen Sternbach.
“I have been recognizing our employees for years, Stephen said. “I think it is important that they are awarded for their hard work and dedication to our patients. Employees have the ability to make or break a company and luckily ours are of the caliber that makes our Company so great”, he continued.
Of the twelve Employees of the Month, each Year the Company selects an Employee of the Year who receives a feature story in the Company Newsletter as well as another monetary gift. Grace Okyere has been selected as Star Multi Care’s Employee of the Year for FY 2015-2016 and we are thrilled to have her on our team. Congratulations Grace!
