Angela, for being November’s CAREGiver of the Month! Angela is the type
of CAREGiver that thinks ahead and solves problems. When her client started
to display signs of mobility and balance issues, Angela took it upon herself,
with the clients permission, to rearrange closets and shelves in the home so
all items would be visible and within arm’s reach. This allowed her
client to remain safely in her home while maintaining some of her
independence. Angela arranges her personal schedule around her client and
makes sure her client is always cared for. When the office surprised
Angela with the CAREGiver of the Month award, we gave her a basket of goodies.
When she saw a gift card for local restaurants she unselfishly stated that she
couldn’t wait to take her client out to a meal. Thank you, Angela, for being
consistent, reliable, loving, and trusting. We appreciate you!
our October 2018 CAREGiver of the Month…Lisa H.! Lisa has been with our Home
Instead Senior Care team since June 2017 and has worked diligently to ensure
that she is providing the best possible care to our clients. Lisa exudes
confidence at all times, which makes her clients feel comfortable and safe
while under Lisa’s care. It’s often that we hear from clients to send Lisa
back, because they love having her in their homes. Thank you, Lisa, for “Living
Home Instead” by building trust, taking the lead, and sharing your heart!
our September 2018 CAREGiver of the Month, Melissa R! This September marks

person. She definitely deserves to be recognized for her work!”
Ashley W. on being our August 2018 CAREGiver of the Month! Kristine from Client
Care says, “Ashley was recently presented with a Gold Star Award at our last
quarterly CAREGiver meeting. From day one she was met with the task of
being matched to a client for end of life care. She opened her heart to
this family and willingly guided them through this difficult transition.
She shows the type of compassion that all CAREGivers could strive to embody and
display. There is no one more qualified and deserving of CAREGiver of the
Month honors. Home Instead is truly blessed to have her on our team.”

“I recently conducted a Quality Assurance

time with one of her CAREGivers, Heather. Heather began working with us
in 2014, and has spent most of that time working with Mrs. Pat. Needless to say, they now consider each other
family. I want to thank Heather for the love and care she provides Mrs.
Pat all the time. You truly make a difference in her life! Thank
you for being her CAREGiver.”

hearts. Wanda has experienced heartache this past year with her client

was, she decided she wanted to serve others longer and has since been
with two other clients who think the world of her, as do those in the
