Home Instead CAREGiver of the Year Award

CAREGiver appreciation is baked into our DNA. We sincerely value the passion and talent each CAREGiver brings to our mission day in and day out.

To thank our CAREGivers for all the amazing things they do, we nominate a person for our national Mary Steibel CAREGiver 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.

2020 CAREGiver of the Year: Maria “Dani” F.

“When I have a client, I always put myself in their place. I take care of them the way I want to be taken care of or the way I’ve cared for my family. Everything I’ve gone through in my life – losing mom and dad, losing my husband – this job gives me strength to keep going and lets me know that life is truly worth living,” said Maria.

CAREGiver Spotlight Story - Sandy R.

Sandy spent four years helping the Parkinson’s client, a retired pastor who died in June 2019. His wife had died three years earlier. “I was with him when he drew his last breath at the hospital. I stayed there the whole night. His spiritual faith amazed me. When he was still conscious and knew he was dying, he said he saw angels,” said Sandy, who works for the Home Instead office that serves Marion County, including Ocala, Silver Springs, Belleview and Summerfield. The award-winning franchise’s owners are Jim and Mary Samuelson.
