CAREGiver Cornerstone - Tamika

CAREGiver Cornerstone - Tamika

Even with her regular clients, Tamika welcomes as many fill-in assignments as she can get if she can fit them into her busy life. Thinking of her three children, Tamika lauded Home Instead Senior Care for its flexibility. “I want the hours, so I have a number of clients and I am trying to keep as many of them as I can. Usually, I can work any day of the week. Home Instead Senior Care has been so good to me by generally giving me only day shifts because of my family." Read more...

CAREGiver Cornerstone - Alexandria

Asked how she felt after being selected as the franchise’s top CAREGiver for the first quarter of 2017, Alexandria said: “I am extremely honored, and I was on the verge of tears. But I don’t think helping others is something out of the ordinary. Helping people should not come with an expectation to receive an accolade. What I do reflects what God has done. Glorifying God is going to matter most in life.” Read more...

​Before joining owners Bryson and Linda McQuiston’s award-winning franchise in July 2015, Thomas was a highly-regarded restaurant and catering chef in Jackson for more than 30 years. Thomas received his culinary start during his college days in 1969 while working part time in food service at a country club. “I always have given attention to detail to whatever I do.

CAREGiver Cornerstone - Dorothy

​Describing her outlook on caregiving, Dorothy said: “I’d like it to always be where the client and I fit together like a glove on a hand. You need to earn their trust. The clients have lived good lives. Every one of them has had a lifetime of experiences and a story. We can draw knowledge and wisdom from them, and I listen because I benefit from them as much as they benefit from having me in their home.” Read more...
