Grid of November Care Professional faces

December 01, 2021

Thankful for November's outstanding Care Pros

As we take note of all that we’re thankful for this month, our amazing Care Pros are right at the top of the list. Their dedication to providing the very best care to their clients is helping us redefine how older adults can age at home.

As usual, it was hard to single out just one outstanding Care Pro from each market. To do this, Client Managers and Care Pro Relationship Managers look at each Care Pro’s record of dependability, consistency, and positive visit reports, as well as stories of Care Pros going above and beyond our already high standards. The 18 Care Pros who are ultimately chosen also stand out for living the Honor Values:

  • Solve with Empathy
  • Own the Outcome
  • Act with Honor
We’re grateful to work for and alongside these wonderful people.
