Caring for a loved one suffering from memory impairment such as Alzheimer Disease is an act of love that can be deeply rewarding. Caregiving can also be a uniquely challenging experience – requiring tremendous sacrifice, compassion, strength, resiliency and commitment.
To honor this love and dedication, Del Mar Caregiver Resource Center is proud to announce our annual “Commitment to Caregiving Award.” The award was created as a way to celebrate and recognize the unsung heroes in our community by honoring one exemplary caregiver who is down in the trenches going above and beyond to help a loved one to live out his or her life with dignity.
