An annual award sponsored by CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions
Taking care of a family member or friend is often rewarding, but it also can be an overwhelming responsibility requiring a great deal of sacrifice and creativity. It may include hands-on care such as bathing, feeding or transportation to and from medical appointments. Caregivers may also be called upon for housecleaning, emotional support or advocacy with health care or insurance providers.
To honor that sacrifice and commitment, CICOA has created the Caregiver of the Year Award to honor one personal caregiver in Central Indiana who models courage, sacrifice, strength and creativity while caring for another.
Who is eligible to be Caregiver of the Year?
Professional (paid) caregivers are not eligible. This contest is to honor personal (family, friend) caregivers. You may nominate any person in Central Indiana who is or was a caregiver for his or her family member or friend in 2013. Central Indiana is comprised of Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Marion, Morgan and Shelby counties.
