celebrating caregivers in your community
The Champlain CCAC celebrated 55 exceptional caregivers at its 2015 Heroes in the Home Caregiver Recognition Awards in May.
The awards were presented to family members, friends, volunteers and health care professionals at three special ceremonies in Ottawa, Pembroke and Cornwall.
This year's caregivers were nominated by members of the community who were inspired by each person's kindness and commitment to helping others.
