“A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles.”
They are family members, friends, neighbours and community volunteers. They are nurses, care coordinators, personal support workers, therapists and social workers. They are HEROES IN THE HOME – women and men who provide direct care, or help someone exercise to stay mobile, or shovel the sidewalk, or simply share a friendly visit.
The North East Community Care Access Centre is proud to celebrate these individuals who are making a big difference in the lives of others with the 2014 Heroes in the Home Caregiver Recognition Awards.
Kicking off in February events were held in Timmins, Kirkland Lake, Parry Sound, North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury, with all nominees receiving a certificate of recognition during a special public reception.
Sometimes even the smallest gestures can make a huge difference, and we believe that there is no time like the present to salute the people who make that difference, day in and day out.
Congratulations to all of our heroes across northeastern Ontario!
