Meet our Caregiving Visionary Award Nominees


Voting has opened for our Caregiving Visionary Award, honoring individuals who act as a beacon of hope for family caregivers or former family caregivers. This year, we're proud to showcase 21 nominees, which you can meet below.

Please vote for the individual you believe best meets the following criteria:

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.

Voting ends at Midnight ET on February 25. We'll announce the 10 nominees who receive the most votes on February 26; those 10 nominees will advance to our finals. From those 10 semi-finalists, we'll choose five award recipients and announce the five winners on March 1.

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

Meet our nominees, below, and then cast your vote for your favorite.
