Meet our Family Caregiver of the Year Award Nominees


Voting has opened for our Family Caregiver of the Year Award, honoring individuals who care for a family member or friend. This year, we're proud to showcase 14 nominees, which you can meet below.

Please vote for the three individuals you believe best meet the following criteria:

  • The family caregiver’s ability to complement their caregiving responsibilities with their own needs and interests.
  • The family caregiver’s problem-solving techniques.
  • The family caregiver’s use of community services.
  • The family caregiver’s community involvement.

The five winners will be featured on and on my podcast as well as receive a free registration to our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference which happens November 7-10, 2019, at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare. We’ll honor the recipients during our lunch on November 9. (Winners, with help from their families, will pay for their hotel stay and travel to Chicago.)

Meet our nominees, below, and then cast your vote for three of our nominees. Voting ends at Midnight ET on March 26.

Our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference is possible because of the generous support of our sponsors:
