Home Instead recognizes outstanding CAREGivers who demonstrate the
Attributes of Love (v). This program inspires CAREGivers to strive for excellence, and it rewards CAREGivers for their hard work, compassionate care and dedicated service to others.
On an annual basis, we select a CAREGiver of the Year and celebrate him/her at a special reception at our office. Our CAREGiver of the Year is also presented to our corporate headquarters in Omaha, Neb., as a nominee for the national award — The Mary Steibel CAREGiverSM of the Year Award.
What makes her a great CAREGiver: Sheila is always willing to accommodate her schedule to assist with last-minute scheduling needs. She even stays later to help her clients, if needed.
Attribute(s) of Love (v) she demonstrates: Sheila is a great example of selflessness and commitment. For example, one of her clients asked her to bake several dozen cookies for her daughter’s event. Sheila agreed to make them before her shift ended. She even stayed later to finish up; however, to her surprise, the cookies were “flat as a board.” (The oven was not working properly, but, because she didn’t want the daughter to be disappointed, she went to the store after her shift and purchased several dozen cookies.)
Likes: Sheila likes to read, garden and spend time with her grandchildren. She is an active member of a book club, the Sheboygan Historical Society and her church.
