Today's Caregiver™ Friendly Award
2014 Nominations

What do personal emergency response systems (PERS), bathroom fall prevention products, incontinence supplies, home safety products, and home monitoring systems all have in common? (And, as of this year, long-term care facilities?)

These are descriptions of some of our Caregiver Friendly Award winners from the past 11 years. They also represent thousands of hours of loving labor by their producers and manufacturers, all working with one thought in common: “What can I do to help the life of the family caregiver become easier?” 

Every year, we are truly impressed by the quality of the entries into the award program. But what I am most excited about is the wide variety of industries that are now sending in entries, and the incredible work they are producing with family caregivers in mind. The deadline for Today's Caregiver™ Friendly Award entries is April 21, 2014.

This year, we are proud to announce a new category for the Today's Caregiver™ Friendly Award: Long-Term Care Facilities. I learned many years ago that working with a Caregiver Friendly long-term care facility is like being able to increase your own personal care team. We are excited about the opportunity to share this year’s winners with family caregivers as they make decisions about placement for their loved ones. 

Award winners will be recognized in Today’s Caregiver magazine and at a Fearless Caregiver Conference. Winners will also be highlighted on (where last year’s winners can presently be found). 

Please share your labors of love with family caregivers and let them know that someone out there is thinking of them. Award entry applications can be found online at or by calling 800-829-2734.
