Thank You for Being a Friend

Thank You for Being A Friend Award:   Recognizing those who support you, the Family Caregiver.


 The Wisconsin Family and Caregiver Support Alliance (WFACSA) is accepting nominations for our first ‘Thank You for Being A Friend’ award, honoring a notable individual, agency, employer who made a significant impact in a family caregiver’s day, week, year, or life!  Family caregivers can nominate a person, agency, employer of their choosing that has had a significant impact on them.  

WFACSA will select one winner in each of the three following categories:

>  Supportive Employer

>  Supportive Agency

>  Supportive Individual


As a family caregiver, do you have someone, whether it be a friend, neighbor, family member, doctor, nurse, care worker, or employer that has made a significant impact on your role as a caregiver?  Maybe someone finally asked how you are doing and whether or not you have the supports you need?  Maybe someone offered to care for your loved one so you could get some sleep and it meant the world to you?  The Wisconsin Family and Caregiver Support Alliance wants to recognize and honor those that support you, the family caregiver. 


To submit a nomination, please complete the form below by September 15, 2019. Nominations will be reviewed by the WFACSA Steering Committee based on the impact as identified by the family caregiver/nominator.  (The Conference Planning Committee reserves the right to present none or multiple awards in any of the categories.)
