HISC North Austin's 2017 CAREGiver of the Year
Michelle Habrecht

Michelle doesn't believe it was 'by chance' that she found Home Instead Senior Care one day on the internet. "I came across a Home Instead advertisement during a job search. I just need to get out and do something I am passionate about, where I can have a blast. When I saw Home Instead, I thought to myself, 'This is up my alley.' I did my homework on the company and loved what I saw. I learned why Paul and Lori Hogan founded the company in 1994. They helped a grandmother but also needed someone to help them. They met a need and continue to do so with this company." Read more...

March 2018 CAREGiver of the Month - Dolly

Dolly learned how much she meant to the client one day when she accompanied the client and a family member to an optometry appointment. “As I waited, the family member came out and said, ‘Mom wants you to come in the room,’ I surveyed the situation and explained it was a small room and there was not enough space for four of us.

Gloria works a full schedule, but she likes the idea that the office allows her ample time off to see her kids’ activities. “They are involved in a lot of sports and other things.

Claudia has now three clients, including two 24/7 overnight situations and one weekend morning client. Her first client passed away in January 2017 after Claudia had cared for her only 2½ months. Claudia explained, “She knew I cared for her, and she’d often ask me to not leave her alone because she didn’t want to die by herself. I promised her: ‘I will be there.’ Sure enough, I walked into my shift that fateful Sunday morning, and 13 minutes into my shift, while I was standing at the foot of her bed, she took her last breath.” Read more...

In recalling her road to becoming a Home Instead Senior Care employee in June 2015 and later being honored as a CAREGiver of the Month, Karon recalled: “After getting settled in following my move to Round Rock in 2011, I had nothing to do.
