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 eleven years.
They also represent thousands of hours of loving labor by their

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 at a Today’s Caregiver magazine’s 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 pages of 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.
