Barbara, our CAREGiver of the Month for October 2017, has been an enthusiastic and encouraging member of the Home Instead Family for seven years. Even after taking a brief break when she moved out of state, she was back the next year and could hardly contain her excitement to get back to her clients!
Barbara is a great example of a Home Instead Senior Care CAREGiver – she is always willing to lend a helping hand, whether that’s by volunteering to meet new CAREGivers at orientation, recruiting new CAREGivers out in the community, or picking up a shift at a moment’s notice. She even keeps a uniform in her car just in case she gets “the call” while she’s out and about!
In October, Barbara was extremely attentive to her client as she declined, and was sure to keep the office well aware of any changes she noticed or concerns that developed so that her client would be well taken care of at the end of her life. According to Barbara, “Caregiving is a wonderful job and we get to care for so many amazing clients. Home Instead is such a fantastic company to work for, and the staff go over and above to match us with our clients. When they take the time to acknowledge us and what we do for our clients, it really makes you feel good inside. As long as you care for your clients from your heart you can never go wrong.” Thank you, Barbara, for always giving 100 percent from your heart to Home Instead!
Barbara was also our CAREGiver of the Year in 2014! Read more here.
