A tradition of great caregiving means that we take care of our own as well as we take care you and your family.

At Home Instead Senior Care, we reward our local CAREGivers with CAREGiver of the Month and CAREGiver of the Year awards to show our appreciation for all they do. Home Instead, Inc. also recognizes regional CAREGivers of the Year and one special CAREGiver who shows exceptional dedication is the recipient of the national award — The Mary Steibel CAREGiverSM of the Year Award.

This program inspires CAREGivers to strive for excellence. It creates a sense of pride in the fact that the Home Instead Senior CareSM franchise network recognizes, appreciates and rewards their hard work, compassionate care and service to others.

Tiara I. – April 2019

Congratulations to Tiara I., our April CAREGiver of the Month! Tiara is so sweet. When she went through training it was a large orientation and training class. She volunteered to train on the Hoyer lift and immediately went into action as a “client” and stayed in character the whole time. She made the class extra fun that day. Every time we see her she has the biggest smile on her face. She is joy to be around and our clients are blessed to have her providing care in their homes.

Connie is a wonderful CAREGiver. She is always eager to please her clients and she goes above and beyond to make sure they are happy. For example, she has one client that is very sensitive to smell.  Connie bought new shampoo and laundry detergent with scents that do not bother this client.  Clients easily recognize the high quality of care that Connie provides, and they all love her for it. We appreciate Connie and all of her hard work!

Liz C. - August 2018

Liz C. - August 2018

When Liz first started with Home Instead she was paired with an Alzheimer’s client who was not very cooperative. Liz worked wonderfully with this client getting her to bathe, eat, and do her daily activities. Liz goes above and beyond to ensure her clients have what they need and are taken care of. She is very attentive, and they love her for it. Her current client has praised her for being a multi-tasker as well as a go-getter, she does not have to wait for direction to get things done! We appreciate Liz picking up and accepting last minute shifts to help the Client Services Department when needed.


Maria B. - July 2018

Maria B. - July 2018

Until recently, Maria worked consistently with a gentleman in Columbia named Edward. She worked Monday-Friday with him, and at the time he was living at home with his daughter.

After several health concerns, he bounced between over four different rehab facilities in the area to try and get the care he needed. During that time, Maria followed him. Every day she would go to wherever he was placed and stay with him all day so he wasn’t alone. Whether he was just sleeping or playing Bingo, you could find her right there. During several QA visits I had staff members from those facilities mention how impressed they were with her. Recently, Edward passed away. On the day of his visitation and funeral, Maria stayed at the funeral home with his daughter Susan all day. Susan has no family in town and Maria was a great support to her.

Maria now works with two other clients ongoing- each of which requested her after her first visit. She is sweet, confident and always makes the perfect first impression.

Dee B. – June 2018

Dee B. – June 2018

June's CAREGiver of the Month is Dee. Dee has worked with her main client - Miss K- since day one of her care and has always proved to be a great help to the family. She has a deep understanding of Alzheimer’s and dementia and is motivated to understand, direct, and be patient with clients who struggle with the disease. She cares for her mom in addition to caring for her clients, and she treats Miss K. like family. She notices things Miss K needs and takes it upon herself to purchase them so the family won't have to make special trips for these items. Thank you, Dee, for your HEART for seniors.


Ellen H. - May 2018

Ellen H. - May 2018

Ellen has always been a dependable and trustworthy CAREGiver. She is consistent and always on time. Several times she has dropped what she was doing last minute to head to a client to ensure they didn’t go without care. She has stuck it out during difficult times for the betterment of her client. Clients never have to worry if what they need done will be accomplished when she’s working for them.
