We proudly announce Caregiver Maria Dani F. as our CAREGiver of the Year! She will soon go to the National Convention in Omaha as one of the eight FINALISTS for the franchise's CAREGiver of the YEAR nationwide!
Dani started with our franchise in May 1999, so that's 20 years and counting! She has served over 100 clients and has seen the growth of Home Instead both locally and on the corporate level. Maria is truly a seasoned CAREGiver with personal and professional experience who confidently steps into the unknown with dignity and grace. We know she goes above and beyond her regular schedule to ensure the client has consistency and familiarity. Going above and beyond for the sake of others comes naturally for Maria. She has been a daughter, wife, mother of 2, grandmother of 2, and always cared for all.
Upon coming to the U.S. with her own young family, she has served faithfully, only taking family leave to care for her ailing mother and father in Portugal when needed. Maria is primarily an overnight CAREGiver sitting bedside with chronically ill clients who need extra support overnight.
Her current client refers to her as "angel." Maria does not approach her time with any client as simply a job to be done; she invests herself in their situation. Thank you for your service and GOOD LUCK AT THE CONVENTION! We are all rooting for you!
