Judy Slama

Judy Slama

​Bringing in the New Year with our AMAZING Caregiver of the Month for January, Judy Slama!


Judy joined the HISC team in August of 2017. She pretty much hit the ground running and hasn’t stopped since! Judy always goes above and beyond for her clients. She is one to put her whole heart into everything she does. Judy is a very busy lady, but somehow she always finds a way to help out her team in a moment’s notice.


Once, Judy was called to see if she could fill in on a shift for a CAREGiver who had an emergency situation to attend to. We sent a message to Judy to see if she could help us out. Judy was responding yes, as she was walking out the door to help. She was on-site with the client within 10 minutes. Not hesitating for a moment to help someone out.


Another time, Judy made homemade chicken noodle soup for a client whose stove was not working and brought it to her. The client loved the soup so much (and the gesture) she even ate it for breakfast! She is always there for others!


When Judy is not busy CAREGiving for our amazing clients, you might find her sewing or doing water aerobics.


Thank you, Judy, for always going above and beyond in everything you do. We are honored to have you on our Home Instead team. Congratulations on earning January 2020 CAREGiver of the Month!

Karen Radebaugh

Karen Radebaugh

We are excited to announce the CAREGiver of the Month of March is Karen Radenbaugh.

Karen joined our team in July of 2018, after seeking a career change. Karen ran an in home daycare and was looking to perhaps change to the other spectrum of care. When you see Karen with her clients, she has such empathy and compassion, that is second to none. You will find Karen always goes above and beyond when it comes to taking care of her clients. Recently she was given an assignment that was very very difficult. She handled it with such compassion and was so professional. She would call the office with updates as needed and was a total advocate for her client. She went above and beyond to assure that this client was comfortable and well taken care of. Karen has a heart of Gold and it definitely shows, especially when she is with her clients.  We are beyond blessed to have her on our team.

When Karen is not Caregiving you will find her reading and Gardening on her acreage. She loves to watch her Daughter play soccer, or sometimes you might even find her helping out with her Husband's construction business.

Thank you Karen for sharing your heart, compassion and love for your clients, you are so appreciated and we Congratulate you for being the CAREgiver of the Month.
