April 5 is National Caregiver Day: Show Canadian Caregivers You Care with an Award Nomination


Canada Cares and We Care Home Health Services to grant one caregiver $10,000 to fulfill a special wish  Toronto, Ontario – March 28, 2013 – Do you know a caregiver who deserves recognition? In a unique initiative, Canadians are being asked to nominate a family, friend or professional caregiver for a “best in Canada” caregiver award and explain what they would do with a $10,000 prize. Called the Canada Cares Caregiver Awards, the new initiative is being launched in celebration of National Caregiver Day, which takes place on April 5. It’s all part of an innovative program, called Canada Cares (www.canadacares.org), that supports and salutes caregivers of all kinds across the country. The awards, which will be presented at both a regional and national level, will recognize two exceptional caregivers – one family or friend and one health care professional – in Western, Atlantic and Northern Canada, as well as four exceptional caregivers in Central Canada. Two National winners will be chosen from selected regional candidates. Caregiver Award winners will be selected by a national committee of caregivers and health professional organizations, according to such criteria as caregiver strength, commitment to care, community involvement and compassion.  One deserving nominee will also be selected to win the Canada Cares One Wish Award, worth $10,000, sponsored by We Care Home Health Services. The Canada Cares One Wish Award will be evaluated on the strength of the caregiver’s commitment to care, the creativity of the response regarding how the $10,000 would be used, and the level of need. “The number of caregivers in Canada is rapidly increasing, with current estimates pegged at over five million,” said Caroline Tapp-McDougall, Chair of Canada Cares. “It’s time to support and recognize caregivers from coast to coast for their tireless, selfless efforts to help improve the lives of others.” Nominations, which can be submitted online, by mail or by video, will be accepted until September 30, with winners announced in November. For details on how to nominate a caregiver, visit www.canadacares.org.   About Canada Cares (www.canadacares.org)Canada Cares is a not-for-profit program that involves a virtual community, grassroots events, and caregiver coaching program. It has been created through a unique partnership between healthcare organizations and businesses across the country, including Canadian Red Cross, Saint Elizabeth Health Care, The Canadian Abilities Foundation, Kohler Canada, MV-1 Canada, Zoomer Wireless, Stroke Recovery Canada, We Care Home Health Services, Lifestage Care,  Invacare Corporation, Spectrum Health Care, Ability Online, Canadian Caregiver Coalition, Alzheimer Society of Toronto, Caregiving Matters, Brain Injury Association of Canada and many others.
