I have worked with Rebecca Provinse for over a year and a half as her son’s caregiver. Throughout this time, she has taught me so much. Rebecca has been an advocate for her son and even advocates for me as well. When I first started working for her, and today on occasion, she will speak up on behalf of her son if she thinks there is a better way to complete a task involving him.
Not only is she an excellent advocate and mother for her son, but she regularly advocates for me as well. She ensures that I use proper body mechanics when lifting him, teaches me stretches and exercises to maintain my body both on a personal basis, and to avoid incorrect lifting while assisting as a caregiver, and her advocating skills extend to always showing concern about my overall health and well-being. It’s definitely not very common to have a boss who cares this much for my overall well-being and who advocates for me on a daily basis. As a result, I am very lucky to be working in this role.
