If you or someone you know is a devoted family caregiver, you understand the stress that comes with caring for a senior loved one each day. That’s why residents of the Greater San Fernando Valley are invited to nominate deserving family caregivers – or themselves – for the opportunity to win a free, five-day cruise.
The local Home Instead Senior Care® office, along with the Stroke Association of Southern California and the Los Angeles Caregiver Resource Center is sponsoring the cruise for one lucky caregiving hero and guest. To enter, submit a brief story which details why the nominated individual deserves to win. Nominations can be submitted online at www.homeinsteadcaregivercruise.com, www.facebook.com/homeinsteadshermanoaks or emailed to Home Instead Senior Care, email@example.com. Entries will be accepted through September 11th. The winner will be announced no later than September 19th.
The five-night, six-day Caregiver Stress Management Cruise is scheduled for Jan. 21-26, 2012, on the Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas. The cruise will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with stops in Belize City and Cozumel. In addition to the cruise, valued at up to $4,000, the winning recipient and guest will receive airfare, an overnight stay in Fort Lauderdale, and free care for the entire length of the cruise from a Home Instead Senior Care professional CAREGiverSM for their senior loved one while they are away.
“We know that caring for an aging loved one can be a rewarding experience, but it also can be very stressful,” said Jim Sample, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office that serves the Greater San Fernando Valley. “That’s why we’re happy to sponsor this contest, which will give a deserving family caregiver a much needed break.”
