Erie St. Clair CCAC to Honour Local Caregivers

​Chatham, ON – The Erie St. Clair CCAC is excited to be once again honouring local caregivers with the 4th annual Heroes in the Home caregiver recognition program.

 

Whether it is a family member caring for a loved one or a health professional providing quality care to patients, the kindness and dedication of these individuals ensures that care is delivered to those who need it. We call these exceptional caregivers “Heroes.”

 

Last year, we honoured nearly 70 caregivers across Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent and Sarnia Lambton. This year, our goal is to celebrate 100 Heroes.

 

“We know that the physical and emotional demands of caring for a loved one are significant. The Heroes program is at least one way our CCAC can show our appreciation to the people who are providing care to our patients in between personal support or nursing visits,” said CEO Lori Marshall. “We are really hoping the community will get involved more than ever to help us identify those Heroes.”

 

Nominations are now open and can be submitted online at www.thepowerofcaregiving.ca. Each nominee, as well as the individual who nominated them, is then invited to one of three official recognition events in Chatham, Windsor and Sarnia in November.

 

“Caregivers play a crucial role in our health care system and we are committed to continuing the Heroes in the Home tradition,” said Marshall.

 

The deadline for nominations is Friday, October 21, 2016. If you are not able to access the online survey, please contact Linda Caron at 1-888-310-8881 x. 7216 to make alternative arrangements.
