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.




National Home Instead CAREGiver of the Year 2020: 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.

Home Instead-St. Cloud CAREGiver of the Year-2020

Sue B. has been a loving CAREGiver with Home Instead for 5 yrs. She has been described a busy little bee with a can-do attitude who continues to elevate the importance of caregiving through her professionalism and decorum. In every facet of her life Sue spreads love to her clients and their families!

On receiving this prestigious award, Barb said: “I believe there are two really important days in our lives: the day we are born and the day we realize why God put us on earth. I’m thankful to God for guiding me to become a CAREGiver for seniors, as I’ve learned so much from everyone I have cared for over the years.”
