Home Instead CAREGiver of the Year Award

CAREGiver appreciation is baked into our DNA. We sincerely value the passion and talent each CAREGiver brings to our mission day in and day out.

To thank our CAREGivers for all the amazing things they do, we nominate a person for our national Mary Steibel CAREGiver of the Year award. It’s a small way to show how thankful we are to them for demonstrating compassion and exceptional care to the seniors and families they serve.


2020 CAREGiver of the Year: Maria “Dani” F.

“When I have a client, I always put myself in their place. I take care of them the way I want to be taken care of or the way I’ve cared for my family. Everything I’ve gone through in my life – losing mom and dad, losing my husband – this job gives me strength to keep going and lets me know that life is truly worth living,” said Maria.

Above & Beyond - Kayla S.

Like many of you, Kayla provides care for several aging adults.  Some on a regular basis and some just when they have an urgent need.  Kayla requested to have a day off last month, but when one of her clients had an urgent need, Kayla put aside what she had planned for that day and took care of this client.   Kayla’s dedication and commitment to these folks really stand out, and we are grateful to Kayla for going Above and Beyond to meet their needs even on a day she wanted to have off.

Helping Hands - Mckay W.

This month we want to say a huge thank you to Mckay and his Helping Hands.  Mckay was willing to drive from the bottom of our territory to the top of our territory to help Home Instead fulfill our obligation to provide care for an aging adult.   Accepting this assignment put a huge smile on the face of our schedulers too.  Mckay, thanks for strengthening our reputation, fulfilling our commitment to this client, by using your Helping Hands for us.
CGoM May2021 Everyday Excellence

Everyday Excellence - Carrie S.

Carrie is providing care for a very unique client.  Most times, this client will not allow Carrie to stay so, Carrie has been creative about meeting this client’s needs.  Carrie goes in (with permission) when the client is out of his room and does what she can until this client returns and sends her away.  Recently, this client was hospitalized, so Carrie was able to change the bed linens and other things so his space is clean and comfortable when he returns home.  Carrie, thanks for the Excellent care you are providing Every day you are there.
