The Carers Association is now accepting nominations for the Carer of the Year and Young Carer of the Year Awards 2012. These awards, sponsored by Emergency Response, celebrate the dedication shown by family carers in Ireland to providing care in the home to their loved ones.
Recognising the commitment made by Ireland’s family carers, the awards are based on a national nomination process, with the public invited to nominate their chosen family carers. All entries will receive a commemorative certificate and four regional winners are chosen. The National Carers of the Year 2012 will be announced at a special ceremony in May.
If you know a relative, neighbour, or a friend who you think should be recognised and rewarded for the extraordinary levels of care they provide to a loved one nominate them before the March 30 deadline. Online nomination forms are available at www.carersireland.com/carersoftheyear2012 php or freephone 1800 240724 to request a nomination form.
