Ramona 2

CAREGiver of the Month, Ramona

Congratulations to our February CAREGiver of the month Ramona. Something we appreciate about Ramona is how she looks for ways to help others. For example, she has offered to stay overnight with our most vulnerable clients when there is inclement or horrible weather and always thinks ahead. She is also great at helping us think outside the box when it comes to client's care, maybe suggesting a new activity or another way to keep them active in the home. She is always organized with paperwork, asking for supplies and any clarification when it comes to scheduling or new clients. Her positive demeanor, funny attitude and willingness to be a team player is why we are honored to give her this award. Congrats again, Ramona!

CAREGiver of the Month, Taviana

Tay, as her clients lovingly call her, is still fairly new to the company, only being with us since September, but she has excelled in both client relations and with the office staff, in such a short amount of time. Anytime we have an unexpected emergency or call off, Tay has proven time and time again to be the best team player, being flexible and helping us out of any bind. Tay is highly requested with all of her clients and makes the best first impression. Often times, after just one visit, she is personally asked by name to continue working with those families and that just goes to show how extraordinary she is! We are so proud to see her caregiving skills develop, and we are excited to see her grow with the Home Instead Family. Way to go, Taviana!
