I work full time, but do not feel a moment’s guilt because I know Doreen is caring for my mother,” said Alicia, the daughter of a current client. “Doreen is an angel that walks with us. I speak for my six brothers and myself. We rest easier knowing she is looking over our mother,” Alicia also said.

Amity Dever was nominated by a current client and placed as a semi-finalist, “stated Debbie Humphrey. “Amity is an outstanding caregiver because she truly loves and cares about me and my needs.
