2015 Caregiver Awards: Nominations Due Oct. 16
This year awards will be presented to four caregivers, a team of caregivers, and new this year: a family caregiver or caregiver of a friend. We hope you will nominate someone you know for one of these awards and/or forward this on to any other organizations or listserves you may be affiliated with. These awards don’t just recognize the winners—they recognize all long-term care workers who work hard every day to serve the older adults and individuals with disabilities in this state.
As an alliance we thought it was very important to highlight and help sustain the important work of families and friends who are caring for a loved one in their own home with chronic, disabling health conditions (both paid and unpaid). We want to honor and recognize the strength and perseverance of these family caregivers who dedicate their lives to care for their loved ones.
The due date for nominations is Friday, October 16.
We would like to thank the sponsors of our awards:
