"The Aide—Caregiver of the Year Award was the most exciting thing that ever happened to me in my 40 years of being in the health care profession! It meant everything to me to know that's what people felt about me.  Being a caregiver is God's gift to me and this award means a lot to me and I will never forget that day."
