Congratulations to all the winners! They embody the spirit of caring and commitment 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.
