BrightStar Care of Marietta and Cherokee County is hosting an event to celebrate an unprecedented seven nominations for BrightStar's 2019 Caregiver of the Year.

CANTON, Ga. - GeorgiaChron -- The families of those being cared for by the nominees each submitted letters describing how their caregivers had improved their lives as well as the lives of their loved ones. BrightStar will honor the nominees with an event on Tues, 11/19/19.

Nominees are:
Jeannette Poinsette-Marietta, Rogette Alexander-Canton, Gail Jordan-Kennesaw, Joyce Williams-Kennesaw, Kenneth Smith-Marietta, Angela Thomas-Marietta, and Victoria Aurenty-Marietta.

Jeannette Poinsette: "We really are the luckiest people to receive the great care and thoughtfulness of our caregiver, Jeannette.. I know beyond a doubt that I can count on Jeannette to help [client], which eases my mind when I'm working.

Rogette Alexander: "Rogette brought life back into my parent's house again. Once she got there, everyone started to see a glimmer of hope in my mom's eyes. Rogette came in and got right to work with my dad, helping him in and out of bed, helping him eat, changing dirty diapers, getting him to the restroom, getting him dressed, bathed, and teeth brushed… I believe without her, our family structure would have collapsed. I honestly don't know what we would do without her."

Gail Jordan: "Gail is always very patient, kind, and compassionate. She makes sure my mother is well taken care of. She isn't just a caregiver that comes in/out to do her job, Gail has become a trusted friend of our family. Gail has such a good heart, and it's clear that she loves helping others."

Joyce Williams: "A very special bond has developed between Barb and Joyce. Joyce is very observant and puts Barb's health and care first."

Kenneth Smith: "We changed our days of service to have Kenny as a consistent companion. Kenny takes [client] to the YMCA for Parkinson therapy/exercise classes. He assists and makes [client] comfortable with attending the classes."

Victoria Aurenty: "Vicky is a keen observer. When I am bathing, dressing, and grooming, she remains alert to my fall potential while allowing me space, yet is always ready to assist… She carefully listens to my healthcare providers and me when at appointments."
