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, Ann R., for being July's Professional CAREGiver of the month! Cassandra from Client Services says, "Ann truly deserves to be July's Professional CAREGiver of the Month because she is always very flexible as far as schedule changes, and helps out all the time with a positive attitude.

Congratulations to June's Professional CAREGiver of the Month, Michelle! Jada from Client Care says, "Michelle is great! She is a friendly and enthusiastic Professional CAREGiver. She truly loves what she does. She adapts to any situation thrown at her, and puts her heart into providing care for seniors. She was very willing and excited to be our FIRST live-in Professional CAREGiver, working 7 days straight every other week!" Michelle always goes above and beyond, and we are so grateful to work with such a positive, professional person. Thank you, Michelle, and congratulations!
Congratulations to Latoya P., our May 2020 Professional CAREGiver of the Month. Latoya has been with the Goodlettsville Home Instead Senior Care Office since March 2019 and has worked with A LOT of different clients. Her clients request her to come back because of her positive attitude, friendly personality, and loving heart. She's always smiling and staying busy when she is with clients and ensuring they are getting the best care possible. Thank you, Latoya, for being consistent, positive, and great all around!
Congratulations to Carrie B, our April Professional CAREGiver of the Month! Carrie's clients have called to brag about her multiple times, and always make sure we know how much she is appreciated. Carrie is more than willing to work on her day off to ensure clients get the care they need, and always has a positive outlook on every situation. Outside of work, Carrie also takes care of her mother and father, and is truly a CAREGiver around the clock.
Congratulations, Janice A., on being our March 2019 Professional CAREGiver of the Month! Jada from Client Care says, "Janice is a wonderful Professional CAREGiver. She fits in anywhere she may be asked to go. She never calls out and is always on time. All of our clients love her. She has made great improvements in all of our clients' health. The wife of one particular client claims Janice is the reason her husband is walking again. She finally feels comfortable leaving him so she can go and get a break or take care of business." Thank you, Janice, for changing lives for the better!
Congratulations, Norda, for being February's Professional CAREGiver of the Month! Normalinda, known as "Norda," started with Home Instead Senior Care in September 2019. In just a few months she has become a true blessing and a shining light in many seniors' homes. Norda originally came in and started as a part-time employee, but loved working with seniors so much she quickly became full-time and more than willing to help out any way she could. Norda keeps a smile on her face at all times. Her kindness is contagious, and we are so thankful to have the honor of working with her.
Congratulations to January's Professional CAREGiver of the month, Felicia N.! Felicia joined the Home Instead Senior Care team in August after being referred to us by another Professional CAREGiver, Callie. Felicia is always proactive, kind, and willing to help. We are so grateful that Felicia has joined our team, as she is a great example of how referring your friends or family members is the best way to bring GREAT Professional CAREGivers to our team! Thank you for all you do, Felicia, and congratulations!
Congratulations to our December Professional CAREGiver of
the Month, Angela W.! One of Angela’s clients called and told us about
the amazing care Angela puts into her work; even when she was injured she still
came to help him. Angela truly puts her heart into what she does and it shows!
She is always friendly, professional and willing to help in a bind.
Congratulations, Angela, and thank you for all you do!

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!
