HERSHEY, Pa., May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cari Medinas of Stroudsburg today received the first Direct Care Worker of the Year award, presented by Secretary of Aging John Michael Hall during the Governor's Achievement Awards ceremony at the PA Partners Conference.

"It is very appropriate to honor Cari Medinas for her selfless efforts. Her duties are demanding and provide her clients with essential support services," Hall said. "The important work done by Cari and all workers in this field is worthy of our thanks and appreciation."

An employee of Private Home Care Services, Inc., Medinas cares for a bed-bound woman with severe disabilities, as well as the woman's husband, who suffers from debilitating dementia and other problems. Her excellent attendance record and high level of care for her clients contributed to her being named for this award.
