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.

Care Professionals of the Quarter

We recognize Care Professionals in 3 key areas: Building Trust, Taking the Lead and Sharing their Heart. Each quarter, the team votes on Care Pros who most deserve to be recognized in each of these categories. We celebrate them and appreciate the positive impact they have upon our clients. Once a year, the team votes on the Care Pro of the Year. This award goes to the Care Pro who has most embodied all three areas. The winner receives a reward valued at $500.

Jessica won the Build Trust award - Jessica from Lindsay: Recognized for her consistency in arriving on time every time and helping her clients walk through significant health changes.

Jessica’s quote: "I've been with Home Instead for a year and a bit and have been loving every moment of it! It does not feel like a job, feels great to leave at the end of my shift and my client appreciates everything I've done for them." "The best part about serving my clients is that I make them smile and have nice conversations with them. Knowing I'm helping them out even if it is with something small makes my day. Feels just like when I was younger with my grandparents."

Care Professionals of the Year

This year Home Instead chose 10 Care Professionals who truly stood out, demonstrating compassion and exceptional care to the older adults and families they work with. Being named a Care Professional of the Year is one of the profession’s highest honors and Home Instead’s highest accolade for our more than 100,000 Care Professionals worldwide. We thank these incredible Care Pros for their dedication and service.


Standing Ovation Care Pro Recognition

A standing ovation is considered the highest form of praise and recognition, taking applause to the next level. Each month, we celebrate Care Professionals who have gone above and beyond in their roles and lift them up with a Standing Ovation. We thank these incredible Care Pros for their dedication and service.

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!
