2017 Exceptional Caregiver Finalist

Congratulations to Diane Borchers, Our 2017 Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Finalist!

In honor of Home Helpers’ 20th anniversary in 2017, 20 caregivers were selected as semi-finalists in this year’s Exceptional Caregiver of the Year Awards. From that group, 10 finalists were selected to travel to San Diego for the Home Helpers National Conference, where one Exceptional Caregiver of the Year will be announced.

We at Home Helpers DuPage Suburbs are very proud to announce that one of our very own exceptional caregivers, Diane Borchers, is one of the 2017 Finalists!

“Compassion” and “dedication” are the two terms used most frequently in all seven of Diane’s nominations. Shetakes the time to know her clients and treats them with respect. Also, her excellent cooking abilities have proven valuable in helping undernourished clients get their appetite back.

Another of our exceptional caregivers at Home Helpers DuPage Suburbs, Carole Dresmal, was nominated as an Honorary Caregiver.*
