Care Professional Awards & Recognition
At Home Instead®, our success revolves around the work of our Care Professionals – and we make sure they know it! We celebrate Care Pros year-round through: notes of appreciation, recognition in our employee newsletter, flowers, extra time off, and even impromptu office parties.
Do You Know Someone With A Caring Heart?
We all have that someone who is a natural born caregiver. If you know a friend or family member that would make an outstanding Care Pro, someone who would easily receive a standing ovation from Home Instead, please share the career opportunity - we’d love to meet them!
November 2022 Care Pro Standing Ovation: Lisa L.
Lisa has shown so much love and care for her clients and their families. She is always willing to help with her regular clients as well as helping with fill in shifts when other Care Pros are out. She is soft spoken, caring and most of all humble. Lisa communicates with the office, the Client Care team and staffing to ensure that her clients get the best care possible. Lisa has been a part of our Home Instead family for about a year and we are ALL so blessed by her:)
Lisa has cared for some of our most difficult clients and done so with grace and kindness. She has served clients that are bed bound and require heavy Personal Care, end of life care, advanced Alzheimer's/Dementia care, as well as served clients whose family members have been difficult, in denial, or critical and she has handled all of these scenarios professionally-all the while providing the best care to her clients.
October 2022 Care Pro Standing Ovation: Bessie M.
We celebrate one of our most tenured and dedicated CARE PROS Bessie M.
She has cared for so many of our clients over these 15 years. She is loyal, dedicated and loving to all of her Seniors. She earned her "snow angel wings" many times over the years. Recently, when Bessie's client tested positive for Covid, she didn't think twice and packed her bags and moved in to ensure her client had constant care! Hard working, Bessie has worked all of her life as a CNA and CARE Professional, but also as a dedicated Mother, Grandmother and active volunteer in her church. Bessie is always giving herself and her time for the benefit of others. She strives to meet the client's needs and wants by taking the time to listen, care and pay close attention to every detail. She understands that it truly is the "little things" that makes a difference. And I quote "my client and I get along so well, because we speak the same language"!
August 2022 Rookie of the Month: Julia D.
A huge shout out to CARE PRO Julia D. who spent her summer home from college working for us and going to CNA school! Even though Julia was working and going to school full time she never was late to a client's home nor did she call out not even once!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is someone who truly understands the assignment.
Julia knocked it way out of the park with her professionalism, strong work ethic and warm personality. Client and Staffing Coordinators raved about Julia's work performance and willingness to take on additional shifts to help teammates out. The feedback received from all of her clients was that they enjoyed Julia and they were all pleased with the care she provided them.
We wish her all the best as she heads back to the University of South Carolina! Go Gamecocks and Julia! Your future is so bright!
May 2022 Rookie of the Month: Marie A.
Care Coordinator Dawn would like to recognize Marie A. as May's Rookie of the Month!
"Marie works every single day and always answers her phone when we call," says Dawn. "Marie always has a positive attitude and a big smile on her face! Marie is a CNA, very smart, skilled and pays attention to detail to ensure that her clients are receiving the best care. One of her clients shared that Marie exceeded their exceptions on the first shift and has continued to do so ever since. She is a hard worker and always looks for things to do. And on top of all that, she is always smiling! We are blessed--as well as her clients--to have her a part of the Home Instead Team!"
January 2022 Care Pro Standing Ovation: Angie
We would like to take a moment and recognize, spotlight, congratulate and sincerely THANK our January Caregiver of the month, Angie. Angie has been such a trusted, loving and faithful Care Professional to one of our very precious families for the last 6 months. Angie has become a part of their family and has Exceeded Expectations of Everyone she Encounters. She has filled in on her days off, stayed late, gone in early and been a rock steady part of her client's life. She understands the importance of consistency especially when your client has dementia. She continually goes above and beyond by providing nutritious meals and hands on personal care as well as peace of mind for the family members and by giving loving attention to her client. Angie exemplifies all of the amazing qualities that it takes to be a true Home Instead Caregiver at Heart and we cannot thank her enough. Wishing you and your family a blessed New Year!
