My friends at Brookdale Senior Living in Indianapolis and their “Caregiver Relief Program” have a great opportunity for someone to win a two-week respite stay at a Brookdale community for a loved one and a well-deserved two-week break for their caregivers.
It’s a super chance for a loved one to enjoy a comfortable and rewarding experience surrounded by professional and attentive staff while the family caregivers relax and enjoy time away from their – or your – caregiving tasks.
The first step is to nominate a caregiver and tell their “story” in an essay not to exceed 500 words in length. Then submit the story online here.
Those without access to the Internet can pick up a nomination form at any Brookdale Senior Living community.
Nominations are being accepted now through September 30, 2012, with the winner notified by phone and email on October 31, 2012.
Providing care to a loved one, be they senior or otherwise, is a rewarding task, but it’s also a time-consuming and sometimes draining one, so if you’re one of those blessed individuals – or someone you know is – I hope you’ll take the time to submit a nomination form. And best of luck in the contest!
