ALBANY, GA (WALB) - People who sacrifice to take care of others were recognized for their efforts Friday. Southwest Georgia Care-Net awarded Pam Hall as Para-professional caregiver of the year and Iona Cason for Volunteer Caregiver of the year.
Bill and Florrie Whigham, both in their 90s, were honored with the Family Caregiver of the Year Award. The Whighams have a 66-year-old daughter, who received brain damage due to complications at birth.
They've been by her side all her life and even encouraged her to walk when doctors said it would never be possible.
Florrie said, "Thank you everybody. We don't think we deserve an award for doing something we wanted to do, but God is great and he's blessed us."
Kay Hind said, "We recognize them, admire them and this is just one way that we can show them that we do know what a good job they're doing."
The recipients are now being considered for the state Caregiver of the year awards given by the Rosalyn Carter Institute. The winner will receive $1,000.
