According to a release, Carol Thompson, of Cottage Grove, has been selected as the 2014 CAREGiver of the Year by the Home Instead Senior Care of Madison, for her commitment and service to Dane County seniors.
Thompson has also been named a national finalist for the award, an honor achieved by only eight CAREGivers out of 65,000 in the Home Instead network each year.
"We're so excited for Carol, as she's so deserving of this honor," said Home Instead Branch Manager Tim Francis. "I say that because knowing Carol is an extraordinary experience. Meeting her is as if you're meeting an old friend for the first time; she truly shines with understanding, compassion, warmth, and kindness."
