2018 CAREGiver of the Year- Stephanie Howard

2018 CAREGiver of the Year- Stephanie Howard

Stephanie has shared her heart from the very first day she started with Home Instead Senior Care in 2015. Steph quickly adapts to the client’s needs, focusing only on them while performing tasks and communicating in a personal, yet professional manner. We have had many unique situations where Steph has been the perfect fit to be assigned to the client. These clients range from having advanced dementia, where they are resistant to care to the positive stories where we are taking a client to a wedding! She is the perfect fit to so many scenarios as she is professional, resilient and so so very caring. Stephanie’s personal standard of care and her beliefs are in line with Home Instead’s values where taking the lead, building trust and sharing of her heart come second nature.

 

Stephanie has enriched and touched the lives of Calgary seniors through over four thousand hours of care! Congratulations on being our 2018 CAREGiver of the Year!
