ALBANY, GA (WALB) – A woman and a business in Albany are honored as Georgia's Older Worker Network recognizes those who serve others.
Lucille Crouch has worked with Meals on Wheels in Albany for close to four decades. At 79, she's older than some of the people the program serves, and she says she loves everyday. Crouch was recently selected as the Older worker of the year for Southwest Georgia.
J.R's Loving Care, a home health provider, was selected as older employer of the year. They tell us many of their clients prefer to work with people 55 and older.
Lucille Crouch said, "Well, it's an honor, but it's really not my honor. It's for the people that I have to help me and the wonderful volunteers which make it all great to serve the people that we serve."
Monica Henderson said, "We have a lot of our clients that request older workers because of their dependability, their honesty and of course, their work ethic. They tend to believe that they're more settled and they feel more comfortable with older workers."
Both Lucille Crouch and J.R.'s Loving Care have been invited to an awards banquet in Savannah where the older worker of the year and employer of the year for the state will be selected.
