South Carolina Resident Receives National Caregiver of the Year Award

FirstLight Home Care honors Cherise Knowlin for outstanding dedication and service to the local community

May 10, 2018 // Franchising.com // MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - FirstLight Home Care, an award-winning provider of non-medical home care, announced its 2018 Caregiver of the Year award winner. Cherise Knowlin, with FirstLight Home Care of The Grand Strand, was selected from more than 4,500 caregivers and was the only employee nationwide to receive the honor. The award was presented during an annual gala at the recent FirstLight Home Care national conference in San Antonio, Texas.

Caregiver of the Year nominees were evaluated based on a variety of criteria, including service excellence; quality of caregiving skills; and empathy, respect and compassion toward clients. Knowlin was nominated for the award by FirstLight Home Care of The Grand Strand General Manager Jamie Recupero, and owner Kristin Randall.

“Cherise is a one-of-a-kind caregiver,” said Recupero. “She is excellent at putting herself in others’ shoes and she will go out of her way to relate directly to a client’s needs. She will pick up any shift and show up at a client’s house with a smiling face, always looking professional.”

Randall added, “Cherise is an extraordinary caregiver because she makes difficult situations better. She is loving, caring and compassionate and simply wants to make her client's day the best it can be. To Cherise, this is not just a job. It's a calling.”

FirstLight caregivers like Knowlin help seniors and other adults with many needs - from personal hygiene and household duties such as cooking, cleaning and running errands, to respite and dementia care. FirstLight Home Care of The Grand Strand is owned by Don, Craig and Kristin Randall. For more information, visit TheGrandStrand.FirstLightHomeCare.com.
