​​Her heart beats for an​​​​​​d her happiness comes from…

Erica Yarn joined the Daytona Beach, Home Instead Senior Care family in January 2015. Having a few years of caregiving experience, Erica believes that her heart beats for and her happiness comes from working in the home health care field. She applied to HISC when talking to some of her friends who were already HISC CAREGivers after hearing about the great support structure and the continuous training opportunities that were offered to employees.  She tells me that she is honored to be an HISC CAREGiver. 

Erica takes the lead by signing up for additional training courses offered at the Daytona Beach office, such as Home Health Aide Refresher classes, as well as specialized training in Hospice so that she can support and care for her clients to the best of her ability. When asked how she likes to be recognized for a job well done, she states that a simple thank you goes a long way! Erica describes herself as people oriented, enthusiastic, kind, task oriented, assertive, and flexible. Her clients sometimes describe Erica as fun loving, hardworking, positive attitude, very humble and caring.  Erica continually shares her heart and her smiles with her clients. She makes sure to stay in contact with the office with any client changes or concerns.  The HISC office staff is quick to note that she is an excellent CAREGiver.  She builds trust by accepting open shifts, responding to messages and/or calls from the office, she arrives on time for her shifts, and truly cares about her clients.  Erica has a smile in her voice as she tells me that she loves the work she does for her clients. As a CAREGiver, she enjoys having the opportunity to meet so many new and interesting people.  She tells me that there is always something new she can learn from each client that she spends time with or helps. Memories of past clients, their bonds, and the times that she has spent together all are treasures to her. One of Erica’s favorite things to do with her clients is to share thoughts and take the time to get to know one another.    

Erica has just added to her family; she was thrilled to tell me about the adoption of her two beautiful little girls. She looks forward to some shopping and making memorable family time moments together with them. Erica couldn’t end the interview without telling me how blessed she is to work with the ladies in staffing.  Her last sentence is, “Thanks a million ladies for being there for me and for always making me feel so appreciated.” 

Home Instead Senior Care, Daytona Beach office is proud to name Erica Yarn as our 2016 March CAREGiver of the Month!​​
