In Memoriam

“If I could only choose one word that best describes Ms. Maxine, I would choose faithful,” writes Dorothy Sanchez, Director of Operations at Selfhelp Community Services’ Licensed Home Care Services Agency, in memory of Maxine Foster-Day, a Home Health Aide at Selfhelp who lost her life to COVID-19 in April 2020.

“Maxine Foster-Day was a faithful employee, a faithful co-worker, a faithful friend.” Sanchez adds:

"In my 20 years of employment at Selfhelp, I’ve never seen anyone so proud of being a home health aide as Maxine Foster-Day. Her eyes would sparkle when she would come to the office. She always had a warm firm hug that was deliberately long. I knew it was her way of showing that it mattered."

"Maxine Foster-Day’s devotion to her job compelled admiration. It’s because of extraordinary people like her that have hope for the true mission of home care, and our ability to provide excellent care to those in need."
