Our Caregiver Spotlight - Anita
Hello, my name is Anita. I grew up in Ortonville/ Holly, Michigan. I spent my high school years at Oakland Christian School. I have four beautiful children and twelve grandchildren. I moved here in 2012 after meeting my husband online six months prior. I came here for a vacation and never went back. I love living here in Toledo.
What I appreciate about working at Christian Home Care: Excellence starts from the head down through the ranks. Everyone in our office is gifted in their own area of service to our team. They genuinely care about their employees, clients and families. This I like knowing that we are a faith based company, Coming from a strong faith based family it is very important for me to feel comfortable being myself when talking or praying with others. I like knowing that when we need a little prayer we don't have to be ashamed to ask our bosses or coworkers to pray for us. At Christian Home Care you are accepted for who you are and that you are unique, I enjoy the flexible schedule we are allowed to create to help balance work and personal life. When I came to Toledo I prayed for a job I walked into Christian Home care filled out an application and walked out not only with a job but an extended family that continually grows each time I take on a new client. I have been a STNA for Christian Home Care for 5 years. I have been taking care of the elderly on and off since 1991. I became certified in 2008.
What I like to do when I am not at work: I love to do crafts. I make things with plastic canvas, I make bead angels, crochet and I just learned how to knit. I like to learn new crafts I like to stay busy. I also love to cook and try new recipes. I think cooking from scratch is healthier and better tasting. I learned to cook from my mother and grandmothers. I love to go for long drives and see different places. I love to take care of my granddaughter. I also like going home to visit my family in Michigan.

Live each day to the fullest because we never know when it will be our last.
"Whereas you don't know the matter of tomorrow, what your life will be; for you a vapor, which appears for a little while and then disappears. Instead you ought to say, if the Lord wills, we will both live and do this or that."
"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."
"Know ye that the Lord, he is God; it is he who hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise; be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting, and his truth endured to all generations."
