Congrats to our Five Family Caregiver of the Year Award Winners

Thank you all so much for voting in our Family Caregiver of the Year Award.

Congrats to our winners:

Denise Bampoe
Caryn J Golden
Nneka Njideka
Heather Oglesby
Cynthia Thompson

You voted for our 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.

The five winners will be featured on and on’s podcast, Your Caregiving Journey, 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. (While winners will pay for their hotel stay and travel to Chicago, those who nominated our candidates agreed to help the family caregiver attend the conference.)

And, thanks so much to all the nominees for all you do and for inspiring us to keep going.
