Why should this person be nominated? (What makes nominee unique; why should they be selected the winner of this category?
Temyka Johnson is a Family Hero! Temyka was a family caregiver for her father who suffered from Alzheimer's. I was the social worker for her father before he passed away and frequently meet with Temyka to provide support, resources and guidance. Although I often suggested long term placement, Temyka was dedicated to keeping her father with her as long as possible. Temyka was strong for her entire family and I want to recognize her for the strength she gave and continues to give to all who know her!

What is this nominee’s involvement in senior care or senior issues
We all know that caring for a loved one is tough. I personally want to commend Temyka for stepping up and taking on the role of caregiver for her father while continuing to work a full time job. Temyka was the family coordinator! Putting together schedules and assigning other family members shifts to help until she came home. Temyka I applaud you and will never forgot the experience I had watching you truly exhibit UNCONDITIONAL LOVE
