Last month, NAHC and CellTrak announced they would be giving $500 scholarships to some of the best and most deserving home care aides in the United States during Home Care and Hospice Month, which is November.
As this is Home Care Aide Week, we think it is only right that we announce the winners of all the scholarships that have been given out this month. Additional winners announced after today will be honored in NAHC Report later in the month.
The winners, so far, of the NAHC-CellTrak Home Care Aide Scholarships are:
Marie Nazaire with New Partners in Care
Nicole Randall with Synergy Home Care
Tiffany Wiley with Visiting Nurses Association
Priscilla Rakestraw with Addus HomeCare
Caitlin Perdue with Interim Health

Cynthia Camacho with All Ways Caring HomeCare

Congratulations to all the winners! They embody the spirit of caring and committment to care that is necessary for a great home care aide. These are some of the finest people in home care and as a society we owe them more than we can say. They do difficult work without complaint and what could be more important or more noble than caring for the most vulnerable people in our society.
“This scholarship is a proven way to help home care aides advance their careers, tell their stories of what caregiving means to them, and highlight the difference it has made in the lives of their patients,” says William A. Dombi, Esq., President of NAHC. “America needs to hear from the people who provide care to our most vulnerable citizens.”
“With the impact of COVID on our industry, we realized our commitment to the scholarship program for 2020 needed to be doubled, to 20 scholarships! In March, many of our home care aides found themselves forced to make tough choices, and yet they remained at the forefront of caring for our family and friends in their homes. Because of their dedication, we want to recognize and support their efforts in continuing a career path as a homecare hero!” Andrew Kaboff, Founder of CellTrak.
