Family caregivers are the backbone of our society, caring for us when we need it most. These individuals sacrifice their personal and social lives to better the life of another. Yet, they rarely receive the recognition and support they deserve. The Alzheimer’s Network of Oregon (AlzNet) understands the time, work and dedication Caregivers provide when living with a loved one who experiences Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia, and we want to honor those Caregivers. AlzNet has created a Caregiver Award program to honor and celebrate two lucky Caregivers awarding them $500 each in recognition of their hard work and dedication. These Caregiver Awards are given annually in November - National Caregivers Month and a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country.
Eligibility: In order to be eligible to apply, a nominee must be the primary unpaid caregiver for a family member or loved one who experiences Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia and requires in-home care.
Nominations: You may nominate yourself or someone you know. So, if you know a Caregiver who is selfless, dedicated, passionate, diligent, brave, creative, or ceaselessly optimistic (it could even be you!), please take the time to nominate that person for this year’s award. There is no better way to show someone that you care and appreciate them. To nominate a caregiver, simply complete the application below and provide a brief description of why you or another special caregiver deserves this award.
Applications for the Caregiver award is due by November 27, 2023: The AlzNet grant committee will review all applications and make its recommendation to the AlzNet Board who will choose the two lucky award winners. The awards will be made in person at the December 15, 2023, AlzNet Memory Café.
