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.
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!
Home Instead 2022 CAREGiver of the Year Award - Elizabeth A.
Elizabeth A. has spent most of her life taking care of people. She has been a mother, a wife, a babysitter, and a nursing home aid. And now she is the 2022 Care Professional of the Year for the Silver Spring, MD−based office of Home Instead.
So it would seem that opening a costume jewelry store would be an unusual choice for Elizabeth, something she did several years ago in Wheaton, MD. But for Elizabeth, her store was just another way of taking care of people. “When I saw my customers try on jewelry for their weddings, it made me happy to see them excited and looking pretty,” Elizabeth says.
Making people happy is what makes Elizabeth happy, whether that person is a young bride in a store or an elderly person in his home. And right now, Elizabeth is happy in her job as a Home Instead Care Pro. “I love taking care of people,” she says. “When I show up and they say, ‘Thank God you’re here,’ that makes me happy.
