ALPHARETTA, Ga. - Beth Cayce, CEO for CaraVita Home Care, has been awarded the 2012 Small Business Person of the Year award.

The award is given each year to an outstanding small business executive in North Fulton County by the Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce.

The award was given during the GNFCC’s annual Eggs & Enterprise Breakfast on Aug. 28.

“I consider the award a reflection of the excellent work of my entire team,” said Cayce. “The goal has always been to help the families of Roswell and North Metro Atlanta meet the challenges of caregiving. We’ve worked tirelessly to help seniors achieve and maintain independence wherever possible.

Since founding CaraVita Home Care in 1998, Cayce has grown the business to provide in-home care services for more than 16,000 seniors in the North Fulton and Metro Atlanta area.

The company develops and manages custom-tailored care plans, allowing aging parents to stay independent longer.

In 2012, the company moved locations, expanding the technology offered in its “Smart House,” a one-of-a-kind facility for Fulton County that demonstrates the home modifications and technologies that support independence for seniors.

CaraVita Home Care also opened training academies for both nursing assistants and caregiving families in 2012.

Formerly the CEO for TheraTx, one of the fastest growing companies globally under her leadership, Cayce boasts more than 30 years experience in senior care, rehabilitation and health management services across a variety of senior living and health care settings, including North Fulton Hospital, Piedmont Hospital, Northside Hospital, Wesley Woods and Community Home Health.

A tireless advocate for seniors, Cayce played a role in the passage of the Aging in Place Bill (SB178), which permits communities to provide additional services to seniors in a setting of their choice.

Cayce also serves as Legislative Chair for the Assisted Living Federation of Georgia, a board member for both Georgia Watch and Care to Learn International, Chairman of the Global Mission Team at Roswell United Methodist Church, and Management Agent for several senior living facilities.
