Congratulations to Shayla McFadden, who was chosen for HCSS of the Month! Shayla was chosen for going above and beyond with her clients, and for her patience and flexibility that she has shown throughout the year that she has worked here.
Shayla is a life long resident of the Syracuse area. Shayla reports that she does not have any kids of her own, but that she has many nieces and nephews who she has helped raise, and she considers them to be like her children. Shayla reported that her grandmother fell very ill, and during that time, she experienced seeing the care of Home Heath Aides. Shayla stated that she also helped with her grandmother's care prior to that time, so she knew that the medical field was a perfect fit for her. Shayla stated that this is what lead her to home care, but that she has always loved helping others, especially children. Shayla reported that she likes to help in the community, and that at her school she volunteered to help with the blood drive, and was able to achieve her goal of reaching over 40 people to donate their blood. Shayla reported that her hobbies include shopping and poetry. Shayla wants to continue working on her goal of graduating from college. When asked what she would bring if she were stuck on a deserted island for a year, she stated, "a year's worth of food, and a hammock."
