Caregiver Awards

Frontline caregivers play a critical and indispensable role in creating a quality long-term care community in Wisconsin. The WI Long-Term Care Workforce Alliance's annual Caregiver Awards are the only statewide recognition of these outstanding individuals and teams working tirelessly in all service locations. 

Caregivers are nominated for the following categories: 

  • Spotlight Individual Caregiver Awards

  • Caring Together Team Award 

  • Heart of Family/Friend Caregiving Award

Each award winner receives a certificate, a monetary prize, and an invitation to be a guest at the WLTCWA Caregiver Awards Ceremony and Luncheon. 

Caregiver Awards Sponsorship

Recognition of a few chosen caregivers gives acknowledgement to all of Wisconsin's caregivers. The Wisconsin Long-Term Care Workforce Alliance (WLTCWA) annually promotes a statewide awards program. All winners receive a keepsake certificate, the four Spotlight Award winners and one family/friend caregiver each receive a $250 award, and the team receives a $500 award. 

The Alliance is soliciting organizations and individuals to donate to its Caregiver Awards Fund. Our state symbol represents the diversity, wealth, and abundance of resources here in Wisconsin. In Wisconsin spirit, the levels of sponsorship are: 

Bucky Badger: Working hard for Caregivers ($1000+)

Sugar Maple Tree: Standing tall with Caregivers ($500)

Robin: Singing praises of Caregivers ($250)

Wood Violet: Individuals blossoming for Caregivers ($100)
