Wafa Zegar, our elderly department caseworker spent hours and days on the phone, reaching out to various federal and state organizations, demanding answers and a solution to this issue.
Realizing that this issue could not be solved during normal business hours, Zegar decided to make a home visit with the client, going to her residence and spending her time and countless hours on the phone, until a solution was made.
"I try to put myself in the place of all my clients," said Zegar. "I try to think, if my parents were in their shoes, how would I handle it and how would I want to see them treated," she said.
She adds that her clients inspire her and effect her in so many ways.
"Listening to them, I find peace, wisdom and see my future and how I want to live it," Zegar said. "Many of their stories touch my heart and soul and to listen to them and hear the journey of their lives makes me feel ever so fortunate for what I have," she said.
Zegar says what sets AAFS aside from all other organizations is their persistence.
"We are honest, straight to the point and do not lead our clientele in the wrong direction. We educate them on their rights, responsibilities and what is right from wrong," she said.
She adds that she always makes sure to relay her motto to her clients: we are here to help you, not hurt you.
"Making progress and reaching a solution that helps our seniors is what makes my job worth while and rewarding," Zegar said.
