Dementia Spotlight Superhero Caregiver Award 

 This year, National Superhero Day falls on Wednesday, April 28. These observances began in 1995 when employees at Marvel Comics decided it would be fun to set aside a day and dedicate it to the characters in the stories they created.

When our team at Dementia Spotlight Foundation was asked who our favorite Superhero was, we easily had our answer: Dementia Caregivers of course! The superpowers they possess are limitless! In our estimation, the first would be their power of dedication. Next there is the unselfishness they possess. As you can imagine, the list is endless!

Here at Dementia Spotlight, we believe that all Dementia Caregivers are heroes! (No doubt they should all be awarded daily!)

 This gave us an idea. Why not have our own annual Dementia Spotlight Superhero Award? The response has been overwhelmingly positive.
We will have three categories:
  • Those who are currently caring for someone.
  • Those who have been dementia caregivers in the past.
  •  A young adult/children caregiver’s category.
 The deadline for nominating someone is April 18th at midnight, EST. We will have an unbiased panel choose the winners. Awards will be mailed in his or her name and announced on April 28th.

All nominees will receive a certificate stating they have been nominated.

 Presently, as we plan our 1st Annual DSF Superhero Caregiver event, these chosen categories will likely grow from here.

Join in on the fun and nominate someone you are proud of by clicking the button below. Thank you and we wish you the best of luck.

* Nominees must reside in the United States.
