2013 Caregiver Friendly Award Nominations
What do personal emergency response systems (PERS), bathroom fall
prevention products, incontinence supplies, home safety products,
caregiver books and media, caregiving workbooks, and medication
monitoring and home monitoring systems all have in common?
These are descriptions of some of our Caregiver Friendly Award
winners from the past ten years. They also represent
thousands of hours of loving labor by their producers and
manufacturers, all working with one thought in common, “What can I
do to help the life of the family caregiver become easier?”
We at Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com launched the Caregiver Friendly Awards in 2002 to celebrate products, services, programs, books and media designed with the needs of caregivers in mind. Entries in the products category have included wheelchairs, consumer medical devices, disposable products and accessible devices.
Among the entrants for
services and programs have been insurance, medical and EAP programs,
Area Agency on Aging programs, care and case management
organizations, long-term care facilities, homecare and
transportation organizations, as well as non-profit agencies. The
books category concentrates on
caregiver friendly books (informative, educational,
inspirational, and insightful). Areas encompassed by the media
entries are audio, video and Web site producers.
Award winners will be recognized in Today’s Caregiver
magazine and at a Fearless Caregiver Conference. Winners will
also be highlighted on caregiver.com (where
last year’s winners
can presently be found) as well as in the
Today’s Caregiver magazine.
Please share your labors of love with family caregivers and let them know that someone out there is thinking of them. Award entry applications can be found online at www.caregiver.com or by calling 800-829-2734.
