Caregiver of the Month

Right at Home Nassau Suffolk's Caregiver of the Month

At Right at Home, our mission is to improve the quality of life for those we serve.  Our caregivers are the most important part of that mission.  We look for, and hire amazing people to join our team, and provide you and your family with the very best care.  We recognize the hard work, compassion, and dedication that all of our caregivers bring to work with them each and every day, but we also want to recognize those that go above and beyond, by celebrating them with the Caregiver of the Month award.

To earn a Caregiver of the Month award, a caregiver must do all of the expected things to help deliver our mission to you and your family.  They must always be on time, clock in and out using telephony, abide by the care plan for you or your loved one, get excellent feedback from their client, and go above and beyond in some way to improve the quality of life for their client or our team.  Not only does the award winner receive a certificate of appreciation and recognition, but they also are awarded a $250 gift card as a thank you for all of their efforts.

If you would like to nominate a caregiver who has gone above and beyond to provide outstanding care, we want to hear about it!
