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

Home Instead, Inc. 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 and rewards their hard work, compassionate care and service to others.

Lu H. - February Above & Beyond Winner

Congratulations to CAREGiver Lu H. for winning February's Above & Beyond incentive program for going that "extra mile"! 

Above and Beyond points are awarded each month to CAREGivers who display exceptional service. One can earn points by accepting a last minute shift, changing your schedule to accommodate a client's needs, or by staying later than scheduled as needed by the office.

Lu will receive a gift voucher for $25.00. Special mention is made to the runner up this month, Julie C., who also took a very last minute shift.
