Watch the video above to see Diedra Hrdlicks at work and hear from one of her clients.
Diedra Hrdlicka’s title is home health aide, a job that covers everything from preparing meals to cleaning to helping with personal hygiene.
A staff member for Good Samaritan Society – Home Care in rural St. Peter, Minnesota, Diedra’s schedule is packed. She travels dozens of miles as she connects with four to eight clients each day.
But when she knocks on a client’s door and she’s greeted with a hug, it’s easy to see that she is providing more than just the assigned care.
In the rush of a normal day, Diedra finds time to slow down, sit with the people she sees, listen to them and become their friend.
In 2017, Diedra was named a Good Samaritan Society Champion in honor of the quality service she provides the people in her care.
