Senior Home Help’s Local Caregiver Nominated for National Award, Among Top 200 in Country
September 2021 (Camden, DE) – Senior Home Help announced today that Renate Jefferson has been nominated for the Home Care Association of America (HCAOA) 2021 Caregiver of the Year Award. This national program recognizes the top caregivers across the country who provide care and services at home, such as assistance with bathing, dressing, and medication reminders, to seniors and people with disabilities.
“Renate should be held up as an example for others to learn from. She takes pride in her work and truly deserves to be recognized for the AMAZING job she does.” clients Tassia and Robert said.
“There were a record-breaking number of caregiver nominations this year – nearly 250 – and the evaluation process was particularly challenging for our judges because each and every caregiver story was inspiring,” said HCAOA Executive Director Vicki Hoak.
“Caregiving is not an easy job, it requires compassion, patience, and dedication,” Hoak added. “Being a caregiver during the COVID pandemic has proven to be even more challenging. However, the nominees for this caregiver award demonstrate their commitment to their clients and to keeping them safe at home every day, often going above and beyond with a song, a surprise outing, or a client’s favorite meal to ensure they are cared for.”
All nominees will be recognized by HCAOA throughout October in the association’s publications and website. The top caregiver will be announced in November to kick off National Home Care Recognition Month, and will receive a cash award of $1,000. Senior Home Help has also established a Go Fund Me project with a $500 contribution to show their appreciation to Renate.
