Caregiver Voices

Meet the August 2021 Honor All-Stars

Care Pros at Honor are setting a new standard of care for older adults. Their professionalism and compassion are shining beacons for our clients and their families. In appreciation of the extraordinary care they provide, Honor is recognizing the best of the best every month, in each of the 17 regions where our home care agency partners provide care.

The Care Pros you’re about to meet here were selected as Honor All-Stars by their Client Managers and Care Pro Relationship Managers. While the managers were considering whom to nominate, they looked at each Care Pro’s record of dependability, consistency, and positive visit reports. But to be honest, that didn’t narrow down the field very much. So they also looked for stories of Care Pros going above and beyond our already high standards.

Without further ado, please meet our first class of Honor All-Stars. We hope you find their stories as inspirational as we do.
