The Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) is honoured to be hosting Heroes in the Home 2017 this fall. The 5th annual even celebrates the dedication and selflessness of caregivers and highlights the extraordinary work of these individuals.
Last year, nearly 130 Heroes across Windsor/Essex, Chatham-Kent, and Sarnia/Lambton were honoured. The LHIN is hoping to reach the 150 mark this year.
Help us reach this goal - Nominate a hero today!
Who does the program recognize?
