Shiba Morris has been with The Thome Rivertown Neighborhood since it opened in 2013. After working with Caring Hearts Home Care for eight years, she began providing care to seniors at Thome Rivertown.
“People come to us after a stroke or a surgery, or maybe they’re just sad because they can no longer live at home,” Shiba said. “But they find happiness here. Here, we make it better for them – we care!”
Though this was her first job working with seniors, Shiba has always had a heart for people. She was raised in Detroit by her grandmother, who is a 92-year-old participant of Thome Rivertown’s PACE program (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly).
Shiba’s grandmother raised her, but she raised her brothers and sisters. She’s always cared for people.
“It’s what I do,” Shiba said. “That’s why I work here. They take care of everything you need. We’re here for you. Food, clothes, shower, activities, we even have someone to do your hair!” Shiba said. “You don’t have to worry about a thing!”
