Caregiving Awards

The Celebrating Excellence in Caregiving Award recognizes that all long term care employees have the potential to make a significant positive difference in the lives of residents. Because there are many team members who contribute to quality of care and life, we will present caregiving awards in two categories:

  • One category is for nursing/direct caregiver and the recipient(s) will be a Nurse, CNA, PSS, CRMA, or other direct caregiver whose attention to detail and professionalism achieves high standards in resident quality of life.
  • The second category is for employees of all other disciplines and the recipient(s) will be a staff member from any other department whose attention to detail and professionalism achieves high standards in resident quality of life.

Administrators/supervisors may nominate a staff member of their choice. Homes may submit one nomination in each category for a total of two nominations per facility.
