Eight great award categories, but only a few weeks left to submit

Last year, Mary Knoebel, The Estates at Rush City, was selected as the 2018 Caregiver of the Year award recipient. There were so many great caregivers to choose from, but Mary’s submission contained stories and information that helped the Recognition Task Force feel like they knew her. For instance, you get a pretty good understanding of Mary when you read a quote from her, “I work in my family’s home, taking care of the ones I love.”

So, if you know someone like Mary, who through rain, sleet, or snow—always delivers care, then please, take the time to nominate him/her for an award. If your nominee is selected, he/she will be presented with an award at our annual convention. If they are not selected, they will receive a signed certificate of appreciation from Care Providers of Minnesota’s Board of Directors Chair, and Care Providers of Minnesota’s President/CEO.
