5th Annual Caregiver Recognition

As our population is aging, the reliance on non-professional caregivers is growing. Adults who have chronic-care needs are able to stay at home longer because of the generosity and selflessness of a relative, friend, neighbor, or volunteer who has become a caregiver to them.

HELP Adult Services wishes to recognize nominated uncompensated caregivers of adults who have chronic-care needs and honor the Caregiver of the Year (chosen by a committee).

To recognize a caregiver, simply describe how the caregiver meets the stated criteria and mail to:

HELP Adult Services, 1941 S 42 nd Ste 200, Omaha NE 68105.

Deadline is September 27, 2014.

A free event to recognize the 1st 20 nominees and their families will be: Tuesday, October 28th at Scott Conference Center – 64th & Pine in Omaha
