We are thrilled to announce our 2019 Daytona Beach CAREGivers of the Year​: Stella & Rikki!

Stella/Rikki CGoY 2019

Stella: When asked about Stella, the office staff gushes that she has the real heart of a CAREGiver. Not only is she reliable and professional with the clients, but she connects quickly with each client she is sent to, they relate to her and trust her almost instantly. She treats each of her clients as if they were her own family, and they soon adopt her into their hearts. When a client has Stella as their CAREGiver, they can’t get enough of her—and when they want her to see her more often, she is always willing to stay late or come in early, and she will most certainly make her herself available for extra shifts

Almost every experience I have had with my clients has been memorable; they each leave an impression in my heart. I am currently working with five different clients, the longest for a year and half. I believe the key to being a successful CAREGiver is not to think of myself, and to try to bring sunshine into each of their lives. What sets me apart is the genuine love and caring I have to offer them through the good times, as well as being their support and shining light through the hard times.

Rikki: When asked about Rikki’s performance as a caregiver, the office staff gushes about her ability to win over any client in just one shift. She is one of our top caregivers, that can go to any client at any time, and once they have met her, they always want her back. She truly embodies everything we hope to see from each member of our caring team, and she is a servant leader in teaching others how to do the same. We saw no one else as deserving of this award as she, even if she didn’t think so herself. We are so grateful to have Rikki in our lives, and she blesses each person she encounters.

Caregiving no longer feels like a job to me, it just feels like my life.  The relationships that come from spending time with my clients brings me unconditional love, and they each have something new to teach me or a new way to bring joy to my life. The challenges you face with caregiving make it rewarding as well. Beyond the wisdom and stories that they share with us, I have learned so many new things from my clients, they have so much more to give than we could ever give them.  I hope I will always be able to do a job like this, because it isn’t a job, it’s a way of life, and it’s a way of life that makes me happy.  I have been with Home Instead in Florida for almost ten years, and before that I worked for Home Instead in Virginia.  I don’t do this job for the recognition, I do it because my heart is full each morning when I wake up and every night when I go to bed.  I feel honored to be able to work for such an amazing company.
