2017 CAREGiver of the Year - Christine Collins
Your hard work, dependability and success with your clients will not go unnoticed. The Home Instead Senior Care network recognizes exceptional CAREGiversSM
with local and national CAREGiverSM
of the Year awards in appreciation for all they do.
Christine Collins of New Port Richey, Florida, was named the 2017 North American CAREGiverSM of the Year for her extraordinary compassion and lifelong dedication to serve others. Since 1997, Home Instead Senior Care selects one of its 60,000 North American professional caregivers for the prestigious award each year – identifying a CAREGiverSM who has exemplified exceptional compassion and care toward his/her senior clients.
"I have always been a caregiver – a trait, I feel, was derived from my Irish heritage," said Collins in her acceptance speech to the more than 1,600 attendees at the Home Instead annual convention in Omaha. "Our clients' families entrust their loved ones' well-being to us. This is truly a privilege, and I am so honored that they allow me to come into their lives at such a vulnerable time and help them along their journey."
Home Instead Senior Care franchise network, the leading provider of home care services for older adults, employs more than 65,000 CAREGiversSM worldwide. Home Instead CAREGiversSM help seniors remain as independent as long as possible in the comfort of their own homes or in care communities as they age, providing services and companionship, from meal preparation and medication reminders, to personal care and Alzheimer's care.
"For Home Instead, there is no greater accolade than CAREGiverSM of the Year," said Lori Hogan, co-founder of Home Instead Senior Care. "CAREGiversSM are at the heart of our mission of enhancing the lives of seniors, and it is truly a blessing to be in the presence of people like Christine Collins. They give us all hope for the future of aging."
