CG Katee has a wonderful “take-charge” attitude. She is proactive and plans ahead for her shifts. When she has a new client she leaves a little earlier to allow for time to find the location. She understands that her clients depend on her. She is excellent at communicating with the office and takes initiative to problem solve.
Recently her client’s phone was not working; Katee spent the time needed to make sure the client had a working phone before she left her shift. Katee is very reliable and responsive when working with clients and staff. We are excited to share that Katee has been with Home Instead for over 1 year now! Way to go Katee, we appreciate you!
Megan is a standout! Her client’s family have great things to say about her... “She has been part of our family for about 6 months and her performance as a CAREGiver is superb! She very quickly learned how to transfer my son and how to use the equipment that is specific to his care.
She is cheerful, dependable and professional. She follows tasks to completion. It is evident that she is intelligent and ambitious. I absolutely believe that she is well suited for the care-giving field.”
Megan has been with Home Instead since September 2017. We think you are pretty awesome too Megan! Great caregiving!
CG Cindy is an exceptional CAREGiver! She made a huge impact on the life of a long term client and their entire family. Cindy began working with her client about 5 years ago with a couple of short visits a week. As her client's needs increased, Cindy also adapted and began caring for her client daily. Over the years Cindy has been a companion, an advocate, and like a family member in her client's eyes. When overnight care became a necessity, Cindy once again accommodated the needs for her client and was there for her. Cindy is caring, loving and such a special person to all. Cindy has been with Home Instead for almost 5 years.Thank you Cindy for all you do for others, we appreciate you!

She helps to make sure she stays on track with her PT exercises. Beverly does all this with a smile and helping hand. Beverly has been a CAREGiver since June 2017. We are so excited to have you on the team, nice work Beverly!
Michael is so compassionate and giving of his time and his
heart as a CAREGiver. He cancelled his own plans to stay longer on a shift
(14hrs!) where the family really needed him. Michael never complained, but
quietly went about giving excellent care for his client and family who depended
on him. Michael has been with Home Instead for less than one month! We are so
proud to have him as part of our Home Instead family!
Elaine has this innate ability to form an immediate, long lasting relationship with her clients and their families. We have heard many times how blessed they feel to have her in their lives.
Please enjoy Elaine's personal story about how she started her CAREGiver journey, as well as testimonies from one of Elaine's current clients and our office staff.
"I became a caregiver when my own mother was diagnosed with lung cancer. I took care of her until she passed away. For some time prior, I had been trying to figure out what to do with my life. I found that after the experience with my mom, that I wanted to continue being a caregiver for others. One year later, I had my first clients with Home Instead; a couple named Mel and Torch. One of my fondest memories was when Mel had me help him with his 200 orchids. I knew nothing about flowers (I really didn't even like flowers), but he taught me how to care for them. I now plant flowers every summer and think of him."
Elaine's heart to serve others goes beyond seniors. She makes care packages that she keeps in her car to hand out to the homeless women in her area. She fills them with feminine products, tooth paste, hand sanitizer, ChapStick, socks, baby wipes, and bottled water.

in all situations. She is very trustworthy and reliable. Her clients describe
her as a “self-starter”, she does things without even being asked; she’s very
good, very open, she’s a sweetheart. We love that Britany is always ready and
willing to help out with short notice shifts. We are so excited to share that

CG Brandy is a calm and reassuring presence to her clients.
She had a challenging situation recently when she arrived to find her client
had fallen and was on the floor. Brandy assessed the client, saw that she was
not injured but could not get her up on her own. Brandy called the
non-emergency number on the back of her badge, they came out and helped the
client up. After the client was taken care of Brandy went to fill out an
incident report. Not finding one in the journal, she called providing an update
and let the office know she would be by to fill out an incident report. Brandy
followed safety first guidelines, communicated with the office, and did an
overall fantastic job with helping her client and following her training
