Local Caregiver Nominated for "Caregiver of the Year"!!
Congratulations to Maria Colligan of Right at Home for her nomination as Caregiver of the Year! She has made it through to the final cut and is one of five caregivers up for the Regional Award, as well as one of twenty caregivers to be judged for the National award! Maria is a Certified Home Health Aide and has worked for Right at Home of Morris & Union County for 4 years.
Right at Home’s Caregiver of the Year Program publicly recognizes and celebrates the accomplishments of a select group of caregivers who deliver extraordinary care to Right at Home clients. The nomination period for Caregiver of the Year began Nov. 4 and ended Dec. 2. During the four weeks, 134 caregivers were recognized for their outstanding service to Right at Home and its clients.A small Corporate Office team narrowed the list of nominations to five per Region. “It was a very difficult task to narrow the 134 nominations down to only 20,” said Mike Flair, Director of RightCare.
The finalists will be given to the Community Committee, which consists of three Omaha-based senior care and caregiver advocates. The Community Committee will select the Region winners, and from that group of four, they will select the National winner. The Region winners will be announced at the beginning of 2014, and the National winner will be announced at Home Improvement 2014.
Way to go Maria!!
