Janet Sovik, a home health aide with Nascentia Health, received the 2023 Caring Award from the Home Care Association of New York State at its annual conference in Saratoga Springs May 4.
The Caring Award recognizes those who have exhibited exemplary compassion, skills and service and whose actions exemplify caring in the home care setting.
Sovik has worked for Nascentia since 1998 and is one of the agency’s most experienced and dedicated home aides. She is specialty trained to care for Alzheimer’s patients, mental health needs and hospice care, and has worked with numerous patients who require a high level of care and training. She was recognized for her exceptional dedication to caring for others in need.
Her manager says, “Janet works so hard. She is busy as a bee when she’s in a patient’s home and is an excellent communicator, always letting us know any issues her patients need addressed. Janet is just a good person. She would do anything you needed and is someone we all count on.” Her colleague says, “Janet never says no to helping a client. She always goes the extra mile and her clients just love her.”
