In the heart of the Portland East branch of Family Resource Home Care (FRHC), a remarkable caregiver recently took center stage, not for her routine caregiving duties, but for an extraordinary act of kindness that unfolded unexpectedly. Deanna Vosika, an unsung hero in our caregiving community, has been awarded the prestigious Lifesaver Award for her quick thinking and compassionate response in a critical situation. Little did she know that the life she saved belonged to one of our own – Chelsea, a Family Resource Home Care Recruiter.

Chelsea’s Account

In her own words, Chelsea shared a harrowing experience that transpired at Safewayy. Faced with the alarming situation of passing out in the pharmacy line, Chelsea’s fiancé, who was by her side, found himself in a state of panic. Amidst the chaos, it was Deanna Vosika who emerged as a calming presence. Unbeknownst to Deanna, she was aiding a colleague, as Chelsea works as a recruiter for various FRHC branches.

“I wanted to reach out to you all and let you know how special of a caregiver you guys have!” Chelsea exclaimed to the Portland East Branch Manager. Despite the frightening circumstances, Deanna’s selfless and immediate response left an indelible mark on Chelsea, emphasizing the depth of compassion that exists within the FRHC caregiving community.
