At Home Instead Senior Care in Omaha, we reward our local CAREGivers with CAREGiver of the Month and CAREGiver of the Year awards to show our appreciation for all they do. Home Instead, Inc. also recognizes regional CAREGivers of the Year and one special CAREGiver who shows exceptional dedication is the recipient of the national award — The Mary Steibel CAREGiverSM of the Year Award.
This program inspires CAREGivers to strive for excellence. It creates a sense of pride in the fact that the Home Instead Senior CareSM franchise network recognizes, appreciates and rewards their hard work, compassionate care and service to others.
We were honored to recognize
these ladies at our holiday party with Paul and Lori Hogan. Judy and Linda are
exemplary examples of Home Instead CAREGivers! They go above and beyond with
their clients and are always an encouragement to our staff! This year they have
experienced ups and downs, personally and professionally, but that has not
hindered their ability to Build Trust, Take the Lead, and
Share Their Heart!
Caring and compassionate are
just a few of the words we would use to describe Judy.
When Linda comes to mind we
think of dependable, positive and outgoing.
Congratulations to these

Congratulations to our March CAREGiver of the
Month, Sara B.!!
Sara is as sweet and humble as they come! One
of her regular clients, Jean, recently went into the hospital and then to
hospice and Sara was there, with the family, every step of the way! Without a
second thought, Sara cancelled her plans to stay overnight in the hospital with
Jean so the daughter would have peace of mind. This is just one example of Sara
going above-and-beyond. Way to go, Sara!
