Edidiong Antiaobong Recognized as National Caregiver Award Nominee

The 2021 Caregiver of the Year Award is given by the Home Care Association of America(HCAOA)

Care to Stay Home is proud to announce that the Home Care Association of America (HCAOA) is recognizing our very own Edidiong Antiaobong as a nominee for the 2021 Caregiver of the Year Award. This national program recognizes the top caregivers across the country who provide care and services at home. 

Edidiong Antiaobong has shown our clients and us, at Care To Stay Home, he deserves to be recognized for all he has done. Edi has shown compassion to our clients, proven he is truly trustworthy to represent our company, providing exceptional service to this community, and has demonstrated his dedication to honesty. Edi strives to live up to our Core Values every day. Edi has been with us for over a year and has continued to help us out whenever he can. He is always willing to pick up extra shifts so that our clients never worry about not receiving care.


When asked, Edi stated that his favorite part of being a caregiver for Care To Stay Home is the ability to get to know the clients on a more personal level. He strives to make every day a better day because seeing them happy is his passion. He was inspired into this career path by seeing how nurses can have such a positive impact on someone’s day or someone’s life. “I think I’ve always told people that I’ve wanted to do something with my life that involved helping others. So, this is a nice way of going about that and giving back to our community.” 

“Caregiving is not an easy job, it requires compassion, patience, and dedication,” said HCAOA Executive Director Vicki Hoak. “Being a caregiver during the COVID pandemic has proven to be even more challenging. However, all of the nominees for this caregiver award demonstrate their commitment to their clients and to keeping them safe at home every day, often going above and beyond with a song, a surprise outing, or a client’s favorite meal to ensure they are cared for.” 

All nominees are recognized by HCAOA throughout October in the association’s publications and website. The top caregiver will be announced in November to kick off National Home Care Recognition Month and will receive a cash award of $1,000. Congratulations to all of the 2021 Caregiver of the Year Award nominees, and THANK YOU to the best of the best – our caregivers here at Care to Stay Home.
