CAREGiver of the Month Dwaylene has been a shining star on our team since 2014! She has positively contributed to the Home Instead community in a variety of ways even above and beyond her exemplary care for our clients. She’s participated in the mentorship program working with newer CAREGivers as they join the Company, helped out in the office with our programs, and volunteered her time at New CAREGiver Orientations where she was nearly brought to tears sharing about how moving her experiences with clients have been.
She seems to have truly hit her stride recently though with her client Mrs. J. The pair immediately bonded and Mrs. J looks forward to Dwaylene’s visits, where she brings a bowling set to keep her client active and mind games to stimulate her. She’s even helped to display her client’s beautiful artwork on her refrigerator!
“It meant a lot for me to win this award because sometimes you’re going above and beyond for your client – not because you have to but because you want to – and you wonder if anyone sees? But I know God sees and he’s pleased. I’m proud to be a CAREGiver with Home Instead because they believe in putting God first in all that you do, and also because I’m able to help our seniors stay independently in their homes.”
