Caregiver of the Year 2012
Carolyn Gay

Caregiver of the Year - Carolyn Gay

To quote her daughter, "To her clients, she is more than just a Care Giver but also a friend. She is always there for her clients, day, night, and weekends. If and when my mom would need to slow down I only hope that she may get a care giver as funny and attentive as she is."
