Each quarter since 2005, The Senior’s Choice has honored one of our members’ caregivers with our distinguished “Caregiver of the Season” award, recognizing their dedication, passion, compassion, and outstanding achievement. The remarkable individual listed below is the kind of person who will be caring for your loved one when you hire a member of The Senior’s Choice to provide in-home care.

Zachary Stephens

Zachary Stephens takes his work seriously and truly cares from the heart. “Zack” is a wonderful asset to Freedom Home Care. He says, “Treat people like family… family that you love.” He knows all about how to treat family. In 1998, Zack took his mother, grandmother, and grandfather into his home to help in caring for them. “Someone had to step in,” he says, “it was the right thing to do.” After more than one disappointing experience with hired caregivers for his family, it became clear to Zack that his standard of care was higher than that of most people he’d encountered. Fortunately for us and for his clients, Zack brings that same standard of care into work with him every day.

Although Zack was a single parent with a teenage son at home, he continued to care for his family members himself, a responsibility that eventually cost him his job. Shortly thereafter, his grandmother died. It was not much later that Zack took his first job as a personal caregiver and discovered he loved it, was good at it, and his clients loved him in return. “You learn the most when you care for family,” he says regarding how his personal experiences have helped him in his work.

We feel Zack “goes above and beyond” in his work. One example of this was when Zack worked 15-hour days for a client because there was no one to relieve him at the time. He wouldn’t leave the client without care, even if it meant staying over. He now has a great relationship with that client and continues to care for him daily.

It was an easy decision to name Zachary Stephens Freedom Home Care’s “Caregiver of the Year.” His heart and standard of care place him in a special group of outstanding caregivers, and we are proud to recognize him for his dedication both to Freedom Home Care, Inc. and especially to his clients.

Thank you, Zack! We appreciate you!
