Congratulations to our 2019 Professional CAREGiver of the
Year, Carla B.! Carla has had many clients, but one client in
particular has only had Carla as a CAREGiver, and that client added extra hours
because she wanted to spend more time with Carla. Carla graciously
adjusted her work and personal schedules to be with this client six days a
week. We hear often from many clients how great Carla is, and that they want
her to return to their homes to provide care, but the relationship she has
built with this particular client has changed both their lives. Carla is
caring enough to stay past the end time of her shift when needed and to teach
new Professional CAREGivers the ins and outs of clients’ needs that she is
familiar with. She meets with new Professional CAREGivers and performs a second
"introduction" with them to ensure the client is getting the best
care they can, without the client needing to tell the new Professional
CAREGiver what to do. Last year, two team members were pregnant and Carla came
to the office and donated huge bags of toys, clothes, and various items to the
team members to help them out. Carla has always been a selfless person and
enjoys helping others when she can. She truly shares her heart.
Congratulations to November’s Professional
CAREGiver of the Month, Susan D. Susan has been a source of positive energy
since she began her CAREGiving career with Home Instead this May. She puts her
heart into everything she does and always provides the best care possible to
our clients. Susan, a.k.a. the “Life of the Party”, works seven days a week and
is still always willing to help when she can. Susan, we are so thankful for you
and all you do. Congratulations!
Congratulations, Damita U., October’s Professional CAREGiver
of the Month! Damita has been with Home Instead Senior Care since May and
has worked diligently to ensure she provides the best care to her clients.
Damita exudes confidence at all times, which makes her clients feel comfortable
and safe while under her care. Thank you, Damita, for “Living Home
Instead” by building trust, taking the lead, and sharing your heart!
Congratulations to Sue S., September’s 2019 Professional
CAREGiver of the Month! Sue literally saved her client’s life last month by
noticing he was not acting like his usual self, and rather than leaving at the
end of her shift at 11 pm, she called the On-Call Supervisor and stayed with him.
She ended up needing to call 911 later in the night and he was admitted to the
hospital, which saved his life. Cassy from Client Services says, “Sue is always
willing to help anyone in need. She is a hard worker, and genuinely cares about
each client she comes in contact with.” Thank you for all you do, Sue!
to Caroline B., our August Professional CAREGiver of the Month! Caroline has
been with Home Instead Senior Care since February, and has made a huge impact
on all her clients. Some words that have been used to describe her by
clients and team members include: dedicated, reliable, pleasant, hard worker
and proactive. We are grateful for Caroline’s positive attitude and her ability
to share her heart while building trust and taking the lead. Thank you,
John Q., for being our July Professional CAREGiver of the Month!
is one of the most reliable CAREGivers we have and we are so thankful for his
consistency. He always helps out when he can, even if that means doing
additional logistics tasks outside of the scope of one-on-one CAREGiving, such
as bringing client journal entries to the office (which is a big help!) The
clients he cares for LOVE him and he is truly a CAREGiver at heart. It is
apparent that he loves taking care of others and we appreciate all he does.
Thank you, John, for Sharing Your Heart!
Congratulations Demetra S. for being our June Professional
CAREGiver of the Month! Cassy from Client Services says, “Demetra always has a
positive attitude and genuinely cares about the individuals she works with.”
Jada from Client Care says, “Demetra is fun, outgoing and always makes me
smile. She has been a blessing to our clients since she started working with us
in November.” Thank you for all you do, Demetra, and congratulations!
B., for being our May 2019 Professional CAREGiver of the Month! Renee has
transitioned into an office position of CAREGiver Development Specialist, but
this month she spent more time with clients than in the office. When a
CAREGiver is unexpectedly unable to help a client, she ALWAYS puts the client
first and takes care of them at the last minute. She works more hours than
scheduled because she is dedicated to our mission. Renee will continue to carry
out our mission in her administrative role, and we are grateful for everything
she does for our clients.
Congratulations to our April 2019 CAREGiver of the Month, Janie
G! Janie goes above and beyond for our clients and from day one we were
receiving praise about her! She is the definition of a caring person, and
CAREGiving is the perfect fit for her. We are so thankful for Janie to be part
of the Home Instead team and we can’t brag about her enough. Janie cares for
each of our clients as if they were her own family, and even in tough situations
she is professional and reliable.
Congratulations, Alara, for being our March Professional
CAREGiver of the Month! Alara has built meaningful relationships with clients,
family members and office staff. She has been a reliable and Professional
CAREGiver and has been an asset to the Home Instead Senior Care team!
Alara has enhanced the lives of aging adults in our community. Thank you,
Alara, for Living Home Instead!
Congratulations, Eleanor A., for being our February CAREGiver of the Month! Ellie has shown that dedication and hard work pays off. Clients love Ellie and request her all the time. She is positive, proactive, and a true leader. We are so proud to have you as part of our Home Instead Senior Care team.
Congratulations to our January
CAREGiver of the month, Shellie C! Shellie joined the Home Instead Senior Care
team mid-November and has already worked 600+ hours! She is always patient with
clients, willing to help out in any way possible, and takes the lead in many
situations, from helping clients at the last minute to deep cleaning entire
homes to ensure client safety. We are so grateful that Shellie has joined our
team! Thank you for all you do, Shellie, and congratulations!
Congratulations to Carla, our December 2018 Professional
CAREGiver of the month! Carla is always more than willing to help out as many
clients in need as possible. She is so professional, courteous, and friendly in
every situation. More times than not she has also helped with last minute
needs, and has recently provided end of life care to a client & family,
even outside of her scheduled availability. Thank you, Carla, for all that you
do to positively enhance the lives of aging adults and their families!
Dwight, for being our November CAREGiver of the Month! Dwight has
been a shining star. He has truly put so much heart in caring for our clients.
He has a positive attitude, fantastic work ethic and is always ready to help
with immediate shifts. Thank you, Dwight, for being so open to all of the
changes in the office, assisting us whenever you can, and most importantly,
sharing your heart with us and all of your clients!
