​ ​Home Instead Caregiver

​​​
A tradition of great caregiving means that we take care of our own as well as we take care you and your family. 

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 recogniz​es, appreciates and rewards their hard work, compassionate care and service to others.

Our Omaha​ Metro 2015 Micki Marr CAREGivers of the Year!

Linda Gincarelli and Judy Meis

Linda.jpgWe 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! Judy M CGOY.jpg

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 outstanding women!!
