Vote for Your Favorite Slogan: Hire a Family Caregiver

vote-247507_640On, we regularly discuss what it’s like to juggle caregiving responsibilities and a career. We’ve talked about the fear of disclosing a caregiving responsibility to a new employer and how some have lost a job because of caregiving responsibilities.

Our non-profit organization, The Center for Family Caregivers, works to embrace, employ and empower family caregivers. On a regular basis, we’ll launch a social media campaign to get the word out about a specific issue surrounding our platform (Embrace, Employ and Empower Family Caregivers). For instance, our Family Caregiver Awareness Days (Cook for a Caregiver, Job Jar Day, Kiss a Caregiver, Grill for a Caregiver, Labor Day Break) are a way to encourage others to “embrace a family caregiver.”

In addition to my goal of employing family caregivers, I’d love family caregivers to be able to find and keep employment. With that in mind, I’m planning a social media campaign that encourages employers to hire family caregivers as well as keep them as employees. The campaign will highlight what makes family caregivers truly valuable employees. With your help, we’ll promote that message across social media, including Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Every great campaign needs a catchy slogan–a memorable one that advances the cause and motivates action. I asked you to submit your best slogans and tag lines. I intended to pick the best five of the submitted slogans and then put those five up for a vote. I couldn’t pick the best five so I’ve selected the best from which  you can choose your favorite slogan and tag line for our campaign. And, because choosing one can be difficult, you can choose your top three. The slogan with the most votes will win. Voting ends at Midnight on February 24, 2014.

As a reminder, the individual who created the winning slogan will receive:

Cast your votes for your three favorite slogans, below. Pick the slogan and tag line that you feel best represents the reason why an employer should hire and retain family caregivers.

    See…why couldn’t I come up with those… (stupid brain gone wish-washy)
    One did sound familiar to my 2nd draft: I had it as
    “Compassion + Strength + Dedication = The One You Need. Hire a Caregiver today!”
    Whomever came up with the addition one in the voting is my sister / brother at heart. Or, at least is thinking like me, which could be a frightening thought. :D

    Awesome slogans – was indeed hard to pick only three ! Has to be a sense of humor however, I found out that is what helped me through some very rough days.

    I resigned myself many years ago to pay it forward as Ms. Brown does – and give people helpful advice when they ask for it. Many are amazed at the first suggestion I have: Hire a reputable and compassionate Elder Attorney.

    Wonderful communication and support – that’s what it is all about !

    @denise? I am so glad you showed all these choices. They are awesome. I chose my three but it was HARD!!! I also know that Mom is my job 24/7. I hope that is the most important job and in my opinion the best I ever had and will.
