Exceptional Caregiver of the Month (ECOTM) Awards

Each month, we recognize an Exceptional Caregiver of the Month (ECOTM) who has provided service that goes “above and beyond” and helps fulfill our mission of Making Life Easier for our clients and their family members. Each ECOTM will receive a certificate and gift of recognition. In addition, each ECOTM will be recognized on their agency's website and social media for their contributions to our community.

All ECOTMs are invited to the Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Annual Awards Banquet and have the opportunity to win the Home Helpers of Bradenton Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Award as well as the Tampa Bay Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Award.

Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Award (Home Helpers of Bradenton)

At the end of each year, one of the 12 Home Helpers of Bradenton ECOTMs will be recognized as our Home Helpers of Bradenton Exceptional Caregiver of the Year! The award winner will be announced at the Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Annual Awards Banquet. At a minimum, Home Helpers of Bradenton Exceptional Caregiver of the Year walks away with a $100 -OR- may win the ultimate prize of a cruise if he/she wins the Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year!

Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year

At the Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Annual Awards Banquet, a Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year will be selected from the 6 Home Helpers Exceptional Caregivers of the Year in our region. Those 6 Exceptional Caregivers of the Year each represent their individual agencies.

The individual selected as the Tampa Bay Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver of the Year among his/her peers will win a cruise for two to a destination of their choosing!

National Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver Awards

Home Helpers of Bradenton also participates in the National Home Helpers Exceptional Caregiver Awards Program. This program is separate from the ECOTM program and all caregiving staff are eligible, regardless of whether or not they have received an ECOTM award during the past year.

Each year in approximately the October time frame, our clients have the opportunity to nominate any Home Helpers caregiver that they feel has been Exceptional over the last year.

The prizes are HUGE. In 2018, our very own Stephanie M. was a runner up and received a $200 cash prize. The prizes for the national winners are even BIGGER.

Here's what nominees can receive this year!

  • Each of 5 national winners will receive a trip for 2 to San Antonio, TX for the Home Helpers 2020 National Conference, a $400 stipend to cover travel expenses, an $800 gift card, a "swag bag" full of goodies, recognition at the national conference awards ceremony, and a customized video detailing their work.
  • All runner ups will have the opportunity to win gift cards and other prizes.

It’s a special calling to be a caregiver. Thank you for being a part of the Home Helpers family and we look forward to recognizing you for the devotion and care to your clients that you bring day in and day out.
