About The Caring Awards

The Caring Awards honor those who make a difference in the lives of family caregivers and former family caregivers.

This recognition comes from longtime caregiver advocate Denise Brown and The Caregiving Years Training Academy. The CTS Safe at Home Phone is one of two products to receive The Caring Award this year.

The Award Winning Entry

Are you or a loved one at risk of fraud through your home phone?

The CTS Safe at Home Phone™ helps you stay connected to family and friends while disconnecting the bad guys. CTS bases this solution on the Ooma Telo 4G Safety Phone. It provides ultra-reliable, full featured, yet inexpensive home phone service that CTS optimally configures for family caregivers and their loved ones.

BOOK: Su Contrato de relación como cuidador de un ser querido: Cómo navegar las dificultades que surgen por los nuevos roles y expectativas by Debra Hallisey and Paula Muller

The Spanish-speaking population in the US is growing. Unfortunately, within the health care and social services arena, they are an ‘afterthought’ for mainstream service providers. Language barriers are far too common.

The Spanish Language translation of Debra Hallisey’s book, Your Caregiver Relationship Contract: How to navigate the minefield of new roles and expectations, provides important perspectives and tools that can help Hispanic caregivers and families. Paula translated Debra’s book; their collaboration arose organically from their connection in the community and their personal experiences.

EVENT (Recurring): Happy Healthy Caregiver Virtual Cafe with Elizabeth Miller
These virtual cafes offer a creative way to support family caregivers and share resources under the umbrella of having a bit of FUN.

Elizabeth also hosts the bi-weekly Happy Healthy Caregiver Podcast that has been recognized as a Top 10 Caregiving podcast. Listen either HERE or on iTunes as family caregivers share how to be happy & healthy while caring for others. Elizabeth provides personal stories and practical tips and shines the caregiver spotlight on other current or former family caregivers.

EVENT (Recurring): An Unhurried Conversation on Grief and Loss with Kathy Murri
In our society, there are few places where one can talk about grief and loss with others. The Unhurried Conversation provides a format for doing so. It is not a support group but more like a conversation that might happen in a cafe among a group of friends–personal, philosophical, heartfelt and supportive. It is unique among the current offering of unhurried conversations as well as among groups for the bereaved.

This monthly event is ticketed, but tickets are free.

ARTIST and CAREGIVER: Bruce Hawkins, who cares for his wife
