Is there a hero in your house?

Friday, March 07, 2014   by: SooToday.com Staff

NEWS RELEASE

COMMUNITY CARE ACCESS CENTRE

*************************
“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. If you know a hero or have one in your life – someone who makes it possible to live more comfortably and independently at home – why not nominate him or her for a 2014 Caregiver Recognition Award?

In the month of March we are looking for nominations in Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie, with local caregiver award ceremonies slated for Tuesday, April 29, and Wednesday, April 30, respectively.

All nominees will receive a certificate of recognition.

Nomination forms are now available on our public website, healthcareathome.ca/northeast, and will also be distributed to our service providers, health partners, older adult centres and community centres.

Completed forms can be submitted via mail, fax, email or by phone to Micheline Groulx.

Please see the nomination form for contact details.

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.

Deadline for nominations in Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury is Friday, March 21, so nominate your HERO today!

Anyone who takes care of The Elderly (and what comes with it) or people with Disabilities is a Candidate. There shouldn't be just 1 Hero. Respect to All! Be it their Job or just Family Members.

Hey Tag, I totally, 100% absolutely positively DISAGREE with your comment!

The elderly are villains, their caretakers facilitators of their TREACHEROUS TRESPASSES AGAINST HUMANITY!

Every nurse that works at A.R.C.H! It is hard to pick just one as they are all the highest example of heroes!
