“Nearly 80% of all caregiving in Canada is provided by volunteers, usually relatives. Until now, they have laboured away from the spotlight.” ~ Ron Farrell, North East CCAC Board Chair
We know that most volunteers would never seek out recognition; they do what they do out of compassion and love. That's why the North East Community Care Access Centre is so proud to launch the second annual HEROES IN THE HOME – Caregiver Recognition Awards.
Do you know someone who has made a difference in your life or played a role in helping a loved one live more comfortably and independently at home? They could be family members, friends, or neighbours – men and women who give of their time and themselves to provide meals, housekeeping, transportation, banking, or simply conversation. They could also be paid caregivers who have gone above and beyond their typical roles to support a person in need.
Why not nominate the hero in your life for a 2015 Caregiver Recognition Award? Simply complete the fillable form, or forward the attached nomination form by mail to:
North East CCAC
40 Elm St., Suite 41C
Sudbury ON P3C 1S8
