This month, we’re overwhelmed by the commitment and enthusiasm these Outstanding Care Professionals exhibit when caring for their Clients and engaging with their team members. We’re grateful for their kind hearts and attention to detail. Thank you for sharing your skills and passion with us.
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 16 Care Pros who are ultimately chosen also stand out for living the Honor Values:
- Care Starts with Connection
- Great Solutions Demand Empathy
- When You Grow, We Grow
- Our Differences Propel Us
We’re grateful to work for and alongside these wonderful people.
Arizona Outstanding Care Pros
Phoenix This Care Pro wishes to remain anonymous. When a Client is nearing the end of their life, you need a Care Pro who is compassionate, proactive, and takes initiative. This Care Pro represents all three of these characteristics. Recently, she provided care to a Client during their final days. She was warm and attentive, and provided the best quality of care to this Client. She treated her Client with dignity which helped bring peace and comfort to the Client during their end-of-life journey. We are honored to have her as a member of our team — Gina M. & Sonya M. Care Pro Relationship Manager
Tuscon Maritza Encinas. Maritza is a great example of Honor’s Value, “Care Starts with Connection.” In every home she visits, the Clients and their families are always impressed with her experience and the way she cares. She consistently receives glowing feedback from her Clients’ families and is almost always “favorited” immediately after a shift. Any time we have a Client who is hesitant about receiving in-home care, we know we can send Maritza to show them how beneficial our services are. She works to build trust with her Clients and she takes the time to understand where they are mentally and physically. She’s always making sure her Clients are happy and well taken care of. Maritza, thank you so much for providing such a positive experience every day. We couldn’t do this without you! — Vanessa L, Client Manager

Florida Outstanding Care Pro
South Florida Itasienne “Tata” Louisseize. Itasienne or "Tata," as we call her, has always handled everything with kindness and grace.

Tata leads every day with a warmth and kindness for caregiving that deserves recognition. — Theresa, Florida Agency Admin
Illinois Outstanding Care Pro

Gwendolyn Smith continually raises the bar in a professional capacity, as well as on a humanitarian level with each interaction she has. She is a true source of emotional and knowledgeable support for other staff, our Clients, and their loved ones. Gwen is a rockstar, and we routinely receive feedback confirming this, including from a Client’s daughter who shared that Gwen brings laughter to the house and is good for the entire family. The daughter knows that Gwen genuinely cares for her mother and is everything the family ever wanted and hoped for. — Anige C. Care Pro Relationship Manager
