Chatham, ON – About 300 people attended the 4th annual Heroes In The Home events over the last week in Windsor, Sarnia and Chatham.
Those in attendance helped celebrate and share the stories of 129 inspirational and dedicated caregivers who received the recognition this year.
“As in past years, these events were emotionally-charged and heartwarming,” said Erie St. Clair Community Care Access Centre CEO Lori Marshall. “It’s so important that we take the time to honour the incredible contribution that family members, friends, neighbours, as well as paid caregivers, make in helping to support people receiving care at home and in the community. It’s just incredible to hear the positive impact these individuals have made in the lives of so many people.”
