Champlain CCAC Launches Search for Community Heroes

Ottawa, December 21, 2013 − For the fourth year running, the Champlain Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) will be recognizing caregivers across the Champlain region who work tirelessly for the benefit of others.

The Champlain CCAC Heroes in the Home Caregiver Recognition Awards gives people the chance to nominate caregivers they feel have made a difference in their community.

The recognition awards are aimed at the many unsung heroes in the community who perform selfless services, working to help others by caring for a relative or friend in need.

Gilles Lanteigne, Chief Executive Officer, Champlain CCAC said: "We are delighted to celebrate caregivers in the community this year. Caregivers are at the heart of our community and make it possible for people to live in their homes with dignity."

"This is our fourth year of working with the Champlain community to organize the awards and we are really looking forward to another event rewarding and celebrating great people and the special things they do for others."
