Caregiver Contest

How has Caregiving Inspired you?

21st Annual Caregiver Contest

Shield HealthCare’s 21st Annual Caregiver Contest is an opportunity for us to honor all caregivers – paid and unpaid, professional and family – who care for loved ones managing unique medical needs. From the moment caregivers begin providing care for someone who is unable to care for themselves, their lives completely change.

This year, we’re asking...

How has Caregiving Inspired you?

For all those who have been called to care, managing the physical, emotional, spiritual, and practical needs of another person can be a life-changing experience that inspires passion, joy, and personal growth. Some approaches to sharing your inspiration may include:

  • How has caregiving challenged you to be creative?
  • How does caregiving encourage you to prioritize self-care?
  • How has your dedication to caregiving benefited your community?

These are just some suggestions – there is no right or wrong answer to how caregiving has inspired you. We invite you to share your story with us in 300 words or more.

Whether you are a professional caregiver or caring for a loved one at home, caregiving may have changed your life in ways both large and small.
