Encouragement & Pampering Night 17 Images
To express our love for our caregivers and to provide a night of relaxation and refreshment, Rent-A-Daughter offered an Encouragement & Pampering Night for our caregivers in September 2014. The evening began with a speaking session where Jill Briscoe spoke about the power of listening while caregiving. After the message, various stations were arranged around the room for the caregivers to visit to receive some pampering. Stations included a prayer corner, Mary Kay makeovers, Essential Oil samples, delicious food and hot drinks, and finger nail painting. Several caregivers also won additional pampering through a foot spa and chair massage! The evening was a success and the caregivers left feeling refreshed spiritually and physically.

Hospice Procedures Training 4 Images
In September 2013, Rent-A-Daughter teamed up with Vitas Hospice to offer a training session on end-of-life care procedures for our caregivers. The information presented was a blend of practical general tips pertaining to meeting the needs of clients needing end-of-life care and specific policies for RAD caregivers to abide by in hospice settings. The Vitas nurse did a fantastic job, and the feedback from caregivers was very positive! We are thankful that the information presented has been helpful for our caregivers to apply as they service their clients.

25th Anniversary Picnic 11 Images
To celebrate our 25th anniversary, Rent-A-Daughter hosted a caregiver picnic on Saturday, August 21st at Whitnall Park in Hales Corners. Many caregivers brought their families to enjoy a relaxing afternoon of warm conversation, tasty food, and great entertainment! It was especially good to meet the spouses and children of many of our caregivers. RAD caregiver Mark T. brought his bluegrass band to the picnic, and they serenaded us with good, old-fashioned gospel music. An exciting part of the afternoon was when Helga Willet, the original owner of RAD, arrived at the picnic. It was fun for the caregivers who were employed by her to reunite! We are glad she was able to observe how Rent-A-Daughter has grown over the last 25 years.
The picnic concluded with the announcement of 5 raffle winners, and everyone indulging in cake after singing “Happy Birthday” to RAD. Since the mosquitoes and the rain stayed away, the caregivers were able to enjoy the beautiful summer weather, conversing with each other and listening to the lively music.
