Call for Nominations: Family Caregiver of the Year Award

0
Do you have a friend or family member who cares for a family member or friend with a chronic illness, disease or injury?

Does your parent care for your grandparent? Does a friend care for her child with special needs? Does your sibling care for his spouse?

If so, we’d love for you to nominate your friend or family member with our Annual Family Caregiver of the Year Award.

Between now and March 15, we’re accepting nominations for our Annual Family Caregiver of the Year Award, honoring individuals who care for a family member or friend. Anyone who cares for a family or friend with a chronic illness, disease or injury (a family caregiver) is eligible to be nominated. We'll choose five winners based on 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.


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 March 15. I'll post our list of nominees who meet the above criteria on March 20 and ask you to vote for your favorite through March 25. 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 April 1.

Before submitting a nomination, please be sure you can help the nominee attend our Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference in Chicago November 7-10 if the nominee wins. You can help by arranging for care for the caree while the nominee attends the conference and/or by helping to offset the costs for the nominee to attend the conference.

The five winners will be featured on Caregiving.com 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 will pay for their hotel stay and travel to Chicago.)
