The Hired Hands Homecare team is very excited to celebrate Ms. Mere V. as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Posted on February 8th, by Mark Winter in Caregivers, Home Care Staff, OUR Caregivers. No Comments

It Was THIRTY Years Ago Today!

While we absolutely love the Beatles… we’re not talking about the day “that Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play”!   On February 8, 1994 (YES, the Nineteens!) we started this little company called Hired Hands in Mill Valley!  Humble beginnings to say the least… but we made sure to have fun with it!  From Day One, our mantra and main premise was clear – Happy Employees create Happy Clients!  We knew it to be true… and we knew that by following those simple words, we could make a really positive impact on the people that we get to work with AND the families that we care for.

 

Today, WE move forward with THIRTY years of laughter, sweat and tears under our belts!  Together, in that time, WE have worked so very hard to brave the storms, … Read More »



Acceptance, Unity & Inclusion!

Posted on January 12th, by Mark Winter in Caregivers, OUR Caregivers. No Comments

“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”  ~ Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

On Martin Luther King day, we honor a leader whose message of remaining resolute in the face of adversity continues to guide us in building a more equal, compassionate world. We must continue to honor his legacy by fighting injustice in all its forms. At Hired Hands Homecare, we are so very honored to have the pleasure to work side by side with such an amazing, diverse workforce. Acceptance, unity, and inclusion must become more common place in today’s society. Thank you for your role in that effort. Together, we can move mountains.

In celebration of the great Dr. King, our offices will be closed on Monday, Jan. 15, 2024.  Even though our … Read More »



Jane is Definitely Not Plain!

Posted on December 8th, by Mark Winter in Caregivers, OUR Caregivers. No Comments

Please join us in congratulating Jane as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!

Last week, we had the pleasure of surprising Jane with our Caregiver of the Month award while she was on shift with our client, Peter. Jane originally joined our Hired Hands family in February of 2015.  She had taken a brief break, and we were so happy when she returned this year!  Let’s just say that it didn’t take long for Jane to prove she is one of our Best, and quite deserving of this award!

Jane goes above and beyond each day with the care she provides. Jane is a part of our live-in team and has taken on some high acuity cases during her time with Hired Hands. She never misses a beat and is an excellent reporter, which is so important to our Clients’ well … Read More »



Who’s a Great Caregiver? Come on – it’s Juan!

Posted on November 17th, by Mark Winter in Caregivers, OUR Caregivers. No Comments

Team Hired Hands is proud to honor Juan as our latest Caregiver of the Month!  This is extra special, as we rarely award this to an individual who has been employed less than 6 months, but when we discussed this as a team, there was no question that Juan was most deserving!

Since Juan started in July, there is not a single client he has worked with that has not called to inform us how amazing he is!  Juan came to us from Tam Adult school with minimal professional caregiving experience and still in the early stages of working very hard to learn English. This can be a challenge for some but not for Juan.   Since Day One, he has jumped right in, and has been working hard and winning hearts over ever since.

As we were presenting the award to Juan, … Read More »

Please join us in congratulating Andi as our most recent Caregiver of the Month!

We recently had some fun with Andi, and surprised her on shift to present her with her award.  Andi is super dependable, flexible, and always eager to help in any way she can… even if that means going across counties to help our Hired Hands Clients!  She has grown into a wonderful caregiver and is always looking for opportunities to enhance her skill set.  We are grateful for Andi’s hard work and strong communication skills.  She always gives the office the best reports!

Hey Andi… what do you have to say?

“I love working for Hired Hands because it gives me a chance to do one of the things that gives me a sense of fulfillment, from helping people.  It has also allowed me an opportunity to cross paths with … Read More »
