"Being a caregiver is more than a job, it’s a lifestyle and you have to love it."

Darlene Carter has worked with Kindred Healthcare at Sheridan Medical Complex in Kenosha for more than 12 years. Darlene is a CNA and loves each and every moment spent helping others. In 2004, she was honored with the Regional Caregiver of the Year Award through Kindred out of 75,000 employees.

The Kenosha Mayor also proclaimed March 9, 2004 as “Darlene Carter Day”. Prior to these great honors she also received employee of the month and the Wisconsin Caregiver of the Year awards through her employer. Darlene is proud to serve on many committees at her place of employment and feels that “we need to recruit more people who care”.

As a caregiver, Darlene faces many challenges and also receives many rewards for her work. The greatest of which are the rewarding and on-going relationships she has developed with the residents and their families.
