MUNCIE, IN—On Thursday, January 19th, Home Instead of Muncie and Anderson hosted a thank you luncheon for a very special group of senior care professionals. In an industry already plagued with high employee turnover rates prior to the pandemic, and massive employee losses during the pandemic, Home Instead celebrated seven local care professionals from Madison and Delaware counties who have provided more than 64,000 hours of one-on-one senior care to local seniors.
With an astonishing combined total of 80 years of service at Home Instead, this special group of care professionals boasts an average age of 73-years-old.
Caregiver of the Year—Rebecca Moles
Kathy Helm—4,166 hours of caregiving
Carolyn Tremble—7,200 hours of caregiving
Edith Holt—10,500 hours of caregiving
Nancy Buckner—11,2900 hours of caregiving
MaryLou Hinkle—12,000 hours of caregiving
Deanie Carroll—18,800 hours of caregiving
“Rebecca Moles, Caregiver of the Year said, ” The job is enjoyable, and I like to help people. My first CNA job was with the Albany nursing home, back when I was 22-years-old. I’ve done other things over the years, but I always come back to home health care. It’s just something I enjoy.”
Franchise Owner, Joe Wrin, opened a local office in Anderson in 2007 and moved from their Anderson office to their Fox Ridge Lane Muncie office on February 1, 2016. The franchise covers Madison and Delaware counties.
The goal of Home Instead is to help local seniors to live safely and independently in their own homes while giving their adult children peace of mind. In May, Home Instead will be celebrating 16 years of helping local seniors.
