Congratulations to our December CAREGiver of the month, Sherry!
Sherry loves: Singing, Reading, Classical Music, Shopping @ Salvation Army, Sunflowers, Tennis, Thanksgiving, Movies, Sweet Tomatoes, and Sleep.
Sherry has a wonderful way of understanding and engaging with our clients. I was recently with her on a first shift and she was with a family that had never used a service before and were a bit hesitant. Sherry introduced herself as "Sherry, like the Frankie Valli song" and they all started singing it..it was great, our client was immediately at ease and they had a wonderful first day together.
Her motto is "Live one day at a time" and it seems to be working for her.
Sherry is a seasoned CAREGiver and it shows. We are so very proud of you and thankful for all of your hard work!

her as “ perfection in a caring person”, and states how much she does over and
above to make her comfortable. In her down time, Jaishauna enjoys spending time
with her 2 little girls, and likes to work out at Shapes. She likes to
cook, and likes even better to eat Japanese food!

Irish eyes are smiling on our Caregiver of the Month for
September, Mary L. Mary and her lilting accent is from Ireland, and
has been in the US since 1987. She is celebrating her 1st
anniversary with Home Instead this month, and says she found her “calling for

grown children, likes to work out, and loves to cook.

It’s hot outside! And Home Instead is keeping it cool with
our July CareGiver of the Month, Anna T. Anna is a diehard Alabama
fan, and her loyalties encompass both Auburn and the Crimson Tide. She was a
stay- at- home mom to her 16 year old daughter prior to joining HISC 2 ½ years
ago, and feels her calling for care to the elderly started when she used to
“adopt” grandparents in local nursing homes. Her sweet Southern accent, and
caring demeanor hides her total inability to cook. Anna was a finalist for the
TV show “Worst Cooks in America”, but in the end, didn’t make the cut.
She enjoys time with her family, the Tennessee mountains, and cheering on
Alabama. Her clients appreciate and love how she goes the extra mile to
make sure they get the best care possible.
Thank you Anna, for being our July CareGiver of the Month!

do is have a “dinner date” with her family. Dwanda is a Tampa native, and
