Our Care Professional of the Month Award Winners

Care Professional of the Month, Charlotte

Care Professional of the Month Charlotte thought for a moment about how to describe her stellar 46-year career in nursing, health care and professional senior care. A humble person, Charlotte said, “For me, it’s all about weathering the storm. That’s my theme.”

Anyone who works in nursing, health care and professional senior care certainly knows about the incalculable number of challenges, big and small, that he or she undertakes. It’s part of the career journey that few others are aware of. Charlotte already had encountered caregiving difficulties – and fulfillment – when she was barely a teenager.

Care Professional of the Month, John

Music and medical challenges are two of the unbreakable companionship threads that bond Home Instead® Care Professional of the Month John Morris and his client, Mr. M.

John recently was wheeling Mr. M. around his skilled nursing home and stopped so they could enjoy several 1970s songs on John’s cell phone. That’s when John’s memories of his serious stroke in 2019 started to flow. John recalled: “I was helpless after my stroke, thinking maybe I’d never work again. After three months of speech therapy, I had this hope God would give me the ability to see through the eyes of seniors, at least to some degree. That helped in my joy and compassion for seniors.”

Care Professional of the Month, ChaTamberlyn

ChaTamberlyn, who has served as a family caregiver for her great-grandmother, always has wanted to help others, and she has had dreams of being a doctor. 

Before finding Home Instead, ChaTamberlyn had worked at an assisted-living facility in Garland. “I was looking for a job that was flexible in all areas of life, a job that would provide an opportunity to not only be flexible in the workplace but also in my personal life. During my year of working with the assisted living facility, I learned the ins and outs of properly taking care of not only my loved ones but also taking care of someone else’s loved ones,”

Care Professional of the Month, Nicole

When 7-year-old Nicole Avis’s grandmother lapsed into a diabetic coma, young Nicole quickly called 911 and then gave her an insulin injection. Nicole knew what to do because she had been enlisted as a family caregiver for her grandmother and properly instructed. As a result of Nicole’s fast action, the two spent many more years together and made great memories. 

Because of her love for her grandmother and other seniors that was evident many years ago, friends and family were not surprised when Nicole was honored as a Care Professional of the Month.
