Care Professional Awards & Recognition

At Home Instead®, our success revolves around the work of our Care Professionals – and we make sure they know it! We celebrate Care Pros year-round through: notes of appreciation, recognition in our employee newsletter, flowers, extra time off, and even impromptu office parties.

Home Instead Care Professional of the Year Award

Care Professional appreciation is baked into our DNA. We sincerely value the passion and talent each Care Pro brings to our mission day in and day out.

To thank our Care Pros for all the amazing things they do, we nominate a person for our national Mary Steibel Care Pro of the Year award. It’s a small way to show how thankful we are to them for demonstrating compassion and exceptional care to the seniors and families they serve.

2021 Care Pro of the Year: Beth Baker

Beth is someone we can all learn from. She leads with love and is always going above and beyond for her clients and all the people in her life. 

Do You Know Someone With A Caring Heart?

We all have that someone who is a natural born caregiver. If you know a friend or family member that would make an outstanding Care Pro, someone who would easily receive a standing ovation from Home Instead, please share the career opportunity - we’d love to meet them!
