Family Caregiver of the Year: Voting Is Open!

It’s time to vote!

Our Annual Family Caregiver of the Year Award honors 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 and to win.

Please vote for one of the nominees, below, keeping in mind 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.

Voting ends at Midnight ET on April 15. Our five winners will be announced on May 1.

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.)
