Tampa Bay Home Care Agency Celebrates 90 Year Old Caregiver And Looks to Add More Seniors to Their Workforce

LARGO, FL., April 10, 2023– “I just like what I do”.  Maryalice Lester turns 90 on April 24th and isn’t slowing down. She’s worked as a caregiver for seniors for much of her life and has seen how caring for her peers in the past few decades, as a senior herself, has given her the confidence to meet her clients’ needs with even more dignity, respect and understanding.
Suzanne Johnson, Administrator of Bayshore Home Care, has seen enormous benefits to hiring seniors to round out their workforce. “It’s a win-win.  We have been able to provide supplemental income to seniors who have a heart for caring for others and our elderly clients feel so comfortable relating to their peers.”
Director or Nursing, Vicki Tew spoke candidly, “There are countless husbands and wives who have been caring for their spouses with long term illnesses like Alzheimer’s. When the ill spouse passes away, the other spouse is left with an immeasurable amount of knowledge and understanding for how to provide practical care. This is the type of employee we strive to hire, no matter their age.” Bayshore will be recognizing Maryalice with a birthday celebration at their office in Largo on April 24th. Bayshore has offices throughout Tampa Bay and serves seniors by providing help with daily tasks like errands, homemaking, providing personal care.
