Call for Nominations: Innovation in Caregiving Award
The Innovation in Caregiving Award award is made possible through a gift to the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging by an Emerita Board Member. Up to three award winners will receive a commemorative plaque and a check for $1,000.
The INNOVATION IN CAREGIVING award will recognize adults (aged 18 and over) who, in the course of caring for an adult aged 60 or over in a private home or a residential setting:
invent a device or technique that solves a caregiving challenge, or
find a new application for an existing device or technique that supports caregiving and eases the burden on caregivers.
Elizabeth H. (Betty) Rose created several devices that made it easier for caregivers to assist older adults. Her efforts resulted in improvements in care and increased comfort for those receiving care.
Betty realized that caregivers are often creative problem solvers as well. She intended this award to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of these individuals who serve on the frontlines of caregiving.
The application deadline is June 30, 2014.
