Congratulations to LaJean Fant for being CaraVita Home Care’s September Employee of the Month. LaJean is originally from Gary, Indiana. She has been married for 18 years and has two adult children, one step-daughter, and three grandchildren. LaJean has always had a passion for caregiving and helping others.
"Family is very important to me. I grew up in a big family, and I was the oldest of seven, so I think I started taking care of my siblings at a pretty young age.”
Since 2005, LaJean has been a CNA, Certified Nursing Assistant. Her previous career was in caring for children with developmental disabilities. Both careers hold similarities in a lot of ways in that she has cared for many individuals with challenges, either mental or physical.
"I'm proud of my character as an individual. Integrity, values, and morals are the most important thing to me and I don't see how you can make it through life without them."
When she is not working, LaJean loves to travel. Her favorite place to visit is Florida, especially Disney World! She is a huge fan of Disney. She also enjoys shopping and going out to eat at various stores and restaurants.
LaJean has been with CaraVita Home Care since May 2016. One of her favorite things about working with the CaraVita family is the supportive staff. She commented that once the staff got to know her and see how dependable she is, that they wouldn’t fail her.
"Coming in to work to see my client every day brings me so much joy. In the car on my drive, I pray for her, as well as my family and friends, and that today will be a day that we can connect and she can succeed. I love getting to talk to her and I really look forward to it every day. I really like my job! I think it's important to have a pure heart and the right spirit when you are caring for someone. I always want to put my best foot forward and provide the best care."
Not only does LaJean enjoy the service she provides, but so do the clients she works with. One client’s daughter stated, "LaJean is professional, punctual, dependable, and really just goes the extra mile to make sure that my mom is provided the most exceptional care."
