Alzheimer's Foundation Of America Seeking Nominations For Dementia Care Professional Of The Year


 

The Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) is now accepting nominations for its 2017 "Dementia Care Professional of the Year." The honor is awarded to individuals who have demonstrated professional excellence in care, compassionate performance above and beyond expectations, and a dedicated commitment to individuals living with dementia.

"Currently, there are more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses," said Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr., AFA's president and Chief Executive Officer. "Every day, there are caregiving professionals who go above and beyond to care for individuals with Alzheimer's disease. This program is about recognizing these outstanding professionals for their efforts."

The search has been held annually since 2007, recognizing and awarding leaders who work with individuals living with dementia. Winners have included doctors, support group facilitators, and program and executive directors of Alzheimer's centers throughout the country.

"Nominees may be chosen by peers/colleagues, employers, clients or clients' families. To be eligible, nominees must be currently employed as a professional care provider to individuals with dementia or their families, and must be certified as an AFA Dementia Care partner through completion of the "AFA Partners in Care" training program," said Molly Fogel, AFA's Director of Educational and Social Services.

Accomplishments may include: achievements through overall career of service; changes to the care system or field of practice; development of successful models of care and intervention; positive impact on colleagues or workplace; positive impact on families; and extraordinary service to clients.

We invite anyone who knows a hard-working, dedicated dementia-care professional, to nominate them. The deadline to submit nominations is October 15. Visit www.alzfdn.org for more information or to submit a nomination.
