team of CAREGiver Ambassadors are here to respond to urgent needs that
may arise day or night. There are a variety of situations in which our
CAREGiver Ambassadors help us ensure the upmost quality of care and
responsiveness. On any given day a CAREGiver may experience an
emergency and be unable to make it to their client's home. In this case
we deploy our CAREGiver Ambassador to arrive on time to ensure the
client never goes without care. In addition, they assist our CAREGivers
with extra support in the home when a client has a particularly
challenging day. We are grateful for our CAREGiver Ambassadors and the
vital role they play as members of our team.
Instead Senior Care is personal to me because every senior in the
community deserves to age in the place that they have called home until their
final days. I chose Home Instead and continue to choose Home Instead
because I can. I can choose to be a driving force in the aging process, and
aging at home. I have watched complete strangers and friends sit in a nursing
home and stare blankly out a window each day, wishing to go home, or leave. I
am realistic that I cannot save everyone, but I can diligently chip away at
spreading the mission and, more importantly, the love. I choose Home Instead
because I genuinely want to positively enhance the lives of aging adults and their
families. I choose Home Instead so that I can work side by side with admin who
quickly became like family and share the same mission. I choose Home Instead to
have the opportunity to be a difference maker, a leader, and a resource for
people who don’t want to ask for help, but need it. I chose Home Instead
because it is an ever-changing business that gives people opportunity…if you
want it. Life is hard, sometimes work is hard, but the choice I made is easy."
