2017 Today's Caregiver™ Friendly Award Nominations

Celebrating Fifteen Years of Honoring Inventors, Designers, Tinkerers, Writers and Creators Working Tirelessly on Behalf of Family Caregivers

What do caregiving organizers, bathroom fall prevention products, incontinence supplies, home safety products, long-term care facilities, caregiver books and media, caregiving resource centers, and medication management systems all have in common? These are descriptions of some of our Today's Caregiver™ Friendly Award winners from the past fourteen 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?”

Every year, we are truly impressed by the quality of the entries into the award program. But what I am most excited about is the wide variety of industries that are now sending in entries, and the incredible work they are producing with family caregivers in mind.

We at Today’s Caregiver magazine and Caregiver.com launched the Today's 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, 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 website producers.

In 2015, we announced the inclusion of a Long Term Care Facility category to honor those facilities that are caring for our loved ones in the most Caregiver Friendly manner and it was a smashing success.

Award winners will be recognized at Today’s Caregiver magazine’s Fearless Caregiver Conferences. 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 Caregiver.com/caregiverfriendly. If you have questions call 800-829-2734.
