So many of our CAREGivers have come to join the Home Instead Family after they discover the joy and satisfaction that comes from caring for one of their own loved ones. Our 2018 CAREGiver of the Year, Michelle, is no different. After caring for her own mother and father until their passing, she has chosen to continue to care for our seniors as if they were her own family.
Michelle joined our family just over a year ago and in that short time has worked over 1,800 service hours and has been able to touch the lives of 24 seniors in our community. She has accomplished this while still caring for her father, almost daily until his recent passing. Michelle does not stop there, she is truly dedicated to mastering her craft by taking as many training classes as she can and never turning down an opportunity to work with a client who may challenge her skill level.
Michelle greets each new client with an eagerness to serve and her passion is represented by every smile, laugh and every sigh of relief that her clients share with her. Not only does Michelle make it a point to provide care that aligns with our vision statement of: Leading by Serving with Integrity and Passion, she also has become an advocate for seniors in our Community. She has sought out ways to participate and contribute towards our Annual Alzheimer's walk fundraising and our fundraiser for the local Meals on Wheels programs.
We are so proud of the work Michelle does every day and how she represents our Home Instead Senior Care franchise office. The work she does every day, with every senior truly encompasses what it means to be the CAREGiver of the Year. Thank you for all you do Michelle, we and they appreciate all that you do!
