Carers provide vital support to many families and loved ones who otherwise would really struggle in their day-to-day life without it.
We want you to tell us all about the compassionate and dedicated carers that you know and nominate them for the Highland Heroes carer of the year award.
NOMINATE at https://www.hnmedia.co.uk/highlandheroes/ in any of the categories by December 17.
The recipient will be an individual, through dedication, kindness and sensitive handling, consistently provides high quality care, and who has made personal sacrifices in order to tend to the needs of others or play a vital role in our communities, providing support and help to people who need it.
Ron Taylor, managing director of award sponsor, Parklands Care Homes, said: “Parklands is proud to support the Highland Heroes Awards. Parklands has been caring in the north of Scotland for 30 years. We know that right across the region there are people selflessly caring for others, often unpaid and unrecognised. As a former carer myself, I know how challenging and lonely it can sometimes be, so it’s important that those who provide care are recognised and celebrated.
“The Highland Heroes carer of the year award is the perfect opportunity to show our support for carers across the Highlands, and I’d encourage anyone who knows someone who cares for others to nominate them. Together, let’s give these heroes the recognition they truly deserve.”
