Heroes In The Home

Heroes in the Home Caregiver Recognition Awards are a chance to say 'thank you' in a very special way to those caregivers who provide care in the home. Honourees are family members, friends, and community volunteers who step up to provide loving care day in and day out, and health professionals like Personal Support Workers, Care Coordinators, Nurses and Therapists who go above and beyond the call of duty and who are all an essential part of our health care system.

The first Heroes event was held in the Oxford region in 2002. Every year the number of attendees and events continues to grow—in 2014 there will be celebrations held in nine regions throughout Ontario.
