Americus - - Many of you spend a lot of your time caring for others. Thursday, some of those caregivers got the star treatment for their actions.

The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving at Georgia Southwestern State University paid tribute to Georgia's caregivers at a ceremony. Two South Georgians were named Caregivers of the Year.

Annie Johnson from Plains has cared for her severely disabled grandson at her home for more than 40 years.

"You've got to feel special with that gold medal around you," we asked.

"Oh yeah. I sure am ecstatic. I've got my beautiful lady right here," Johnson says with a smile referring to Carter.

"Helping caregivers take care of mentally ill people and then having that experience firsthand, its been a really great organization," Carter added.

Inez Moultrie from Albany also won the award.

"I love doing it. I really do. It's rewarding knowing I'm helping someone else," Inez said.

She has worked for 20 years as a caregiver to children and adults with disabilities.

Both winners received $1,000 and a golden rose.
