Stephanie McNaughton 2023

Stephanie McNaughton, Client Care Ambassador

Stephanie began her employment with Home Instead in 2020 and was initially hired as both a caregiver and Client Ambassador. Her experience in outside sales and customer relations has been a plus for her in the development of her position as Client Ambassador.

As our client and caregiver base grew, Stephanies sole focus has been the development of her role as a Client Ambassador. This role encompasses the timely completion of  monthly and quarterly Quality Assurance Assessments.

Stephanie developed a questionnaire which she titled, Know Your Client. This questionnaire was created to assist the caregiver with detailed care instructions pertaining to their new client. The questionnaire is used as a guide to interview a new client or their family members. The information acquired references the details with primary focus on  the clients’ daily care needs, schedule, routines, favorite activities, exercise, food preferences, topics of interest, housekeeping tasks, client/family expectations.

When Stephanies mother was diagnosed with Dementia and could no longer live alone, she quit her job in 2013 to help her two sisters care for their mother. Her personal experience caring for friends and family, the 24/7 care of her mother, her positive experience with a home senior care service she and her sisters employed to assist in their mothers’ care, amplified her desire to help those in need of acute or prolonged care.

Midori Norris, Service Care Coordinator

Midori joined the Home Instead team as the Service Coordinator but also took on the additional role of Caregiver Manager. She adeptly resolves and manages caregiver issues, drawing on her extensive 12-year experience in the medical field.
