Ruth Yekeson is being honored as Bucks County’s Direct Support Professional Hero. Ruth is strong, dedicated, and fearless when it comes to her job and supporting those with whom she works. When the home in which Ruth works had a positive case of COVID-19, Ruth was the sole Direct Support Professional willing to work without any hesitation. She wasn’t weary of this challenge and she proved that she’s a leader within Community Options. Ruth came to work every day to provide the necessary support to both individuals while they were recovering. She always ensured they were constantly hydrated, well nourished, and checked on multiple times throughout her shifts. Their health and safety always came first. No matter what, everyone could count on Ruth. She provided daily reports of the progress being made at the home and informed her co-workers of these developments. Ruth exhibits the true meaning of passion and care. She’s an inspiration to all and deserves full recognition for the unbelievable leadership shown throughout this unprecedented time.
Community Options is beyond grateful to have someone like Ruth caring for the individuals on a daily basis. We’ll continue showing this appreciation for Ruth as our Direct Support Professional Hero! Read Newsletter.
