    Caregivers play a special role in the lives of the ones they tend to each day.
    Their tasks and challenges are great, sometimes outweighing the needed thanks.
    That’s why those dedicated folks are special.
    Recently a Lancaster caregiver, Karen Hoffman, was honored for her work as a caring caregiver.
    Hoffman was presented the local Family Caregiver of the Year Award, an annual honor given by Homewatch Caregivers, which is an international provider of full-service home care, and co-sponsored by the National Family Caregivers Association.
