Recognizing Our Wonderful Caregivers


January 2018

Please join us in congratulating our January 2018 Caregiver of the Month, Latonya Wingard! You may recall that Latonya was previously awarded our Team Player of the Month award twice, for both August and December of 2017. She is a favorite caregiver for several clients and we often receive excellent feedback on her warmth and professionalism, as well as requests for her to return. In addition to her regular schedules with three different clients, Latonya is also one of our go-to caregivers for covering emergency and regular call-offs and regularly accepts additional shifts. Latonya covered several tough to staff shifts in January and also accepted back-to-back shifts on several occasions that required her to leaves one client’s home to go directly to another client’s home. Latonya’s clients have heavy personal care needs that she skillfully handles. She is always willing to train fellow care team members to ensure that the gold standard of care is consistent across the care team. Like all of our best caregivers, Latonya never misses a clock-in or clock-out, does not call off her accepted shifts, and always keeps the office informed about her clients’ conditions by reporting concerns. The office staff especially appreciates Latonya’s pleasant personality and responsiveness to communications from the office. Latonya – thank you for consistently delivering the Right at Home “gold standard” of care!

As a reward for earning the Caregiver of the Month award, Latonya will be awarded a $100 bonus, given Right at Home apparel, have her name engraved on the Caregiver of the Month plaque in our office, and receive company-wide recognition.


Please join us in congratulating Steven Early, our January 2018 Team Player of the Month! Steven is a true team player and has demonstrated his flexibility and willingness to help us out on many occasions in January. Importantly, he accepted a last minute live-in shift with clients who changed the schedule at the last minute. In addition to covering the live-in shift, he has been a go-to caregiver for our scheduling team by accepting overnight and day shifts. He even offered to cover a tough to fill shift that was far away from his home that he know the scheduling team was working hard to fill. He is a true professional with the both his clients and the office staff and is polite in all of his interactions. And, of course, like our very best caregivers, Steven never calls off his accepted shifts, is always on time to all his shifts, reports changes in his clients’ conditions to the office, and turns in his care notes each week. Steven, thank you for your team spirit and for delivering the gold standard of care to our clients.

As a reward for earning the Team Player of the Month award, Steven will receive a $50 bonus and company-wide recognition.

We would also like to congratulate our January 2018 All-Stars, who will be awarded a $20 gift card to Meijer and receive company-wide recognition. Right at Home All-Stars are selected based on several factors, including excellence in regularly clocking in and out on time, not calling off shifts, and providing great care to clients. Total hours worked for the month and a willingness to cover shifts and be a team player are also considered.
