Angela E. - May 2024 Care Pro of the Month

Angela E CPOM May 2024


We are pleased to award Care Pro of the Month to Angela Eggett for May 2024!

Angela has been the saving grace, jumping at the opportunity to take on lots of extra last-minute shift work! Angela is an expert at providing care to those with severe, late-stage dementia who require a Care Pro with She is able to engage, soften difficult personalities, re-direct, and turn refusals into an acceptance. This is an extremely important skill set to have, especially when it comes to assisting people with ADLs, such as bathing, eating, and taking their medications. Angela knows companionship is a large part of providing excellent care and takes that very seriously. She even taught herself how to play piano, so that the next time she went to visit her client, she knew that person would immediately be put at ease once she began to play! That’s going above and beyond. Angela, we are so grateful for you.

Thank you Angela. You truly make a difference!

March 2024 Care Pro of the Month Monica F.jpg

We are pleased to award Care Pro of the Month to Monica Frandsen for March 2024!

Monica has been taking care of people all her life. It all started at about the age of 9, when she would visit her grandma up in Montana for the summers up until she was 16. Monica just loved her summers with grandma! Shortly after that, she enjoyed providing customer service at a grocery store for the next 14 years. She loved assisting people with getting their coffee and finding their favorite foods. Now that Monica is with Home Instead, she can continue that same joyful service with a smile, in providing top-notch in-home care for seniors. She has mastered the skills in assisting with activities of daily living, including safe ambulation and transfers, assisting with bathing, cooking delicious, healthy meals, and working with people who have dementia in order to give them the best quality of life possible. As a Care Professional, Monica couldn’t dream of any other job that brings more satisfaction than helping others thrive independently in their homes. 

Thank you, Monica.
You truly make a difference!

Kaleb A. - January 2024 Care Professional of the Month

We are pleased to award Care Pro of the Month to Kaleb Aycock for January 2024!

Kaleb has proven to be an outstanding Care Pro in a short amount of time. He came to us with a background in helping troubled youth in a group home. He has always enjoyed helping people. One day, Kaleb came to his mom and said, “I’ve applied to a company called Home Instead, what do you think?” His mother, Brande, (who currently also works with our Salt Lake City branch), chuckled, and said, “Well, do you notice something about your mom?” Kaleb took a closer look and saw her standing there in her Home Instead uniform top as Brande stated, “Clearly I’m okay with it!” They get a good laugh about that often. Now, those previous skills of Kaleb’s have translated over into helping seniors and he has been learning and growing into a true Care Professional ever since. Kaleb has matured tremendously, working with the senior community. His love of sports helps him create those bonds with other sports-fans, which is especially great in providing good one-on-one male companionship with his male clients that really need it. Kaleb got training with Home Instead on how to provide a safe transfer using a gait belt and is now fully skilled in helping get taller men safely to their beds and chairs and provides safety while bathing.

Thank you Kaleb.
We are truly proud of you!
