As a leading provider of medical supplies for care at home, Shield HealthCare understands the demanding role of today’s caregivers. Whether family caregivers or healthcare professionals, caring for a person with chronic medical needs requires special attention and dedication. With this in mind, Shield HealthCare developed an annual story contest in 2001 on “What Makes Caregiving Rewarding?”  The contest is designed to recognize and reward the challenging role of caregivers.

Since 2001, Shield HealthCare has collected over 1,000 touching stories from dedicated caregivers.  From sons and daughters caring for an aging parent to parents caring for children with multiple disabilities, the prevailing theme is that of courage, hope and appreciation for each warm smile and every accomplishment, no matter how small.

In Shield HealthCare’s 1st edition caregiver story book, titled “The Love of Caring – A Collection of 100 Heartfelt Caregiver Stories” you will find a collection of our top 100 caregiver stories for a glimpse into the life of a caregiver. These stories come from a very special place–the hearts of caregivers.

All of us at Shield HealthCare would like to acknowledge and thank all the dedicated caregivers who have shared their personal stories throughout the years. Your voice has inspired and educated many and will continue to be heard through this heartfelt collection.

Proceeds from the sales of this book will be donated to the National Family Caregivers Association.
