Caring Champions -- Honoring Professional Caregivers
Professional caregivers often come into a senior's life during a time of illness, transition, and worry -- bringing support, patience, cheer, and wisdom when it's needed most. The Caring Champions program recognizes stories of extraordinary senior care -- and rewards the top ten with a cash bonus from Caring.com!
In June 2013, we announced this unique new program and received nominations. In July, we published qualified stories and invited our online community to add social media votes for their favorites to help us in choosing ten bonus winners. Social voting closed at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on July 31, 2013. Our judging committee then used the social votes and subjective criteria to select only the top ten Caring Champions of 2013 -- who each earned a cash bonus from Caring.com ($500 for grand prize winner, Selena Brown, and $100 for each of the nine runners up).
