The Caregiver of the Year Award is an award designed to recognize selfless acts, effort and commitment of caregivers toward their loved ones. It’s a time to honor those that sacrifice their own resources, comfort, and sometimes livelihoods for the good of others. Many caregivers retire early and give up their lives to take care of their loved ones. The job of a caregiver although honorable is usually a job where a person may feel under appreciated.
The Caregiver of the Year Award lets caregivers and the community know a caregiver’s service, commitment, time, resources, energy, strength, loyalty, patience, and faithfulness is valued and deemed worthy to be celebrated!
As a part of the yearly Caregiver’s Rest Conference, Caregiver’s Respite recognizes and celebrates individuals from all types of care giving diligence situations. If you know of someone who provides outstanding, unpaid care for an ill family member or loved one nominate them, using the form below, today!

Caregivers Respite would like to congratulate our Caregivers of the year 2015, Mrs. Velma McCollins and Mrs. Blondell Phillips. They are two awesome and kind-hearted women who devote their time to being a huge help. Both caregivers spend their days unselfishly caring for their loved ones. Both nominees are so gracious, they really are true examples of what family caregivers are all about.
