A local resident who provides care to Forsyth County families was recently honored at a national conference for his “compassion, companionship and service to local seniors.”

Mack Murphy, a caregiver at Cumming’s Comfort Keepers office, an in-home service that provides aid to seniors and other adults in-need, was named Comfort Keeper of the Year at the company’s annual leadership conference in Orlando, Florida.

He is one of only a few chosen from hundreds of Comfort Keepers offices nationwide.

“To be recognized by Comfort Keepers as Comfort Keeper of the Year is a great honor,” Murphy said. “I am humbled at being selected from among so many truly dedicated caregivers all over the country. It is truly a special honor that I will cherish.”

To receive the honor, caregivers must be nominated by clients, clients’ family members, peers or Comfort Keepers franchisees who submit the stories of the men and women who go above and beyond their normal duties to provide exemplary service to their clients.


“Mack truly exemplifies and embodies the very best of the values that our caregivers so willingly share with our clients.”

Winners are ultimately selected by the majority vote of the owners of the Comfort Keepers franchises.

“Mack truly exemplifies and embodies the very best of the values that our caregivers so willingly share with our clients,” said Alan White, owner of Cumming’s Comfort Keepers. “We are honored to have one of our caregivers selected as Comfort Keeper of the Year. Most seniors will tell you that they prefer to stay in their own home. I am thrilled to own a business that can make their wishes a reality.”

The Cumming office opened in 2004 and the office serves seniors throughout several north Georgia counties, and caregivers provide in-home care services on an hourly, daily or weekly basis with services tailored to individual’s needs.
