Do you provide support for family caregivers or former family caregivers?

Do you change the experience for family caregivers and former family caregivers for the better?

If so, we’d love to honor you with our Caregiving Visionary Award.

Between now and January 31, we’re accepting nominations for our Caregiving Visionary Award, honoring individuals who act as a beacon of hope for family caregivers or former family caregivers. Any individual who meets the following criteria is eligible to be nominated:

1. The nominee must currently care or previously cared for a family member.

2. The nominee developed and implemented an innovative way to support family caregivers or former family caregivers.

3. The nominee provides support for family caregivers or former family caregivers in a way that makes the caregiving experience better and easier.

4. The nominee inspires others to make a difference.

To nominate someone you know or to nominate yourself, please complete the form at the bottom of this post. Deadline to submit a nomination is January 31. We’ll post our list of nominees on February 10 and ask you to vote for your favorite through February 15. The 10 nominees who receive the most votes will advance to our finals. From those 10 semi-finalists, I will choose five award recipients and announce the winners on March 1. (Please note: We reserve the right to decline a nomination which doesn’t embrace the spirit of our award.)

The five winners will be featured on Caregiving.com and on my podcast as well as receive a free registration to our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference which happens November 9 and 10, 2018, at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare. We’ll honor the recipients at a reception on the evening of Thursday, November 8. (Winners will pay for their hotel stay and travel to Chicago.)

About Denise

I began working with family caregivers in 1990 and launched Caregiving.com in 1996 to help and support them. Through my blog, I share words of comfort and offer coping strategies and tips. I also write opinion pieces about recent research, community programs and media coverage of caregiving issues. I've written several caregiving books, including "The Caregiving Years, Six Stages to a Meaningful Journey," "Take Comfort, Reflections of Hope for Caregivers" and "After Caregiving Ends, A Guide to Beginning Again." You can purchase my books and schedule a coaching call with me in our store.
