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.
Home Instead Care Professional of the Year Award
Care Pro appreciation is baked into our DNA. We sincerely value the passion and talent each Care Professional brings to our mission day in and day out.
To thank our Care Pros for all the amazing things they do, we nominate a person for our national Mary Steibel Care Professional 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.
Vivian has been part of our team for six years, serving 66 different clients through over 5600 hours of care. There are many couples who have received her care over the years, and several assignments have been challenging due to mental illness or advanced dementia. Through her maturity and passion for Home Instead’s mission, Vivian takes the lead. Since the pandemic's beginning, we appreciate how Vivian has consistently served clients amidst incredible change, restrictions and risk.
Our Client Care Coordinator, Rita, said: “It has been a privilege for us to watch Vivian share her heart when introducing her to a new client. We get to see this beautiful thing happening… It is not just how she earns someone’s trust and advocates for them, it is everything combined. Vivian is such a gentle spirit, so tender-hearted and generous, and nothing changes that for her. Over six years, our whole team has never seen Vivian present herself differently…. Under any circumstances… she always gives her best.”
2022 Care Professional of the Year: Vivian K.
We see how Vivian becomes a big part of her client’s world, making a significant impact through kindness. She is pleasant and humble… her presence and service are uplifting for clients. So much so that clients will do anything to not lose her… even adjusting their schedules so that can keep Vivian in their life. If we needed a Care Pro for our own Moms, we would trust Vivian.
