ComForCare, a franchised provider of in-home caregiving services, announced the Caregiver of the Year at the company’s 20th annual conference. Maryann Lakey, a ComForCare Home Care caregiver in Vancouver, WA, was named the 2022 Caregiver of the Year for her outstanding service and exemplary care. She was invited to Henderson, Nevada to attend the annual dinner and award ceremony. 


“Maryann is highly skilled, extremely knowledgeable, and a team player who has consistently 

displayed and promoted the highest ethical standards,” said Debi Kyle, franchise owner of ComForCare in Vancouver. “Her willingness to work overtime, her dedication to champion each client’s needs, and her compassion for caring has made her a superstar to many of her clients and to her team.


The Caregiver of the Year is a distinguished award recognizing a caregiver who exemplifies ComForCare’s core values and goes above and beyond by demonstrating extraordinary commitment to clients and families.


One example of Maryann going above and beyond was when she stepped in to plan a celebration for a special client turning 100 years old. One obstacle was to figure out how to get the client in his hospital bed to the dining area. Maryann suggested reaching out to the EMT’s who had assisted him over the years. They willingly agreed to come and assist in moving his hospital bed and equipment to the party location. It was done at no charge to the family. It was a remarkable celebration that the family and the community enjoyed. Maryann has a whole roster of clients who continually look forward to her visits.
