Diane Waddy of BrightStar Care Rock Hill was selected for the franchise’s Caregiver of the Year award, a release states. Waddy was chosen from thousands of caregivers nationwide who are nominated by families. Waddy was surprised with the award during a celebration at BrightStar Care on Sept. 19.
Linda Pfeifer, daughter of BrightStar Care client Marjorie Scott, nominated Waddy.
“Diane has saved my 93-year-old mother’s life numerous times – from lifting her spirits when she’s down to providing stellar care for her after a fall that left her on the floor an entire day one Fourth of July,” Pfeifer said in her nomination letter. “Diane has always been by mom’s side going above and beyond. We rest so much easier knowing that Diane is there taking care of our mom in our absence. When we say Diane is a lifesaver, we mean that with all of our hearts. We couldn’t do it without her.”
