Excellence in Caregiving Award

Each year the Colorado Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association gives the “George and Pat Sugerman Excellence in Caregiving Award” to a professional caregiver who provides outstanding care to people with Alzheimer’s disease. We rely on your nominations to identify these exceptional caregivers.

Each nominee will be recognized during the 2013 Annual Alzheimer’s Association Education Symposium. This year our Symposium will be held on Friday, October 25th, at the Marriott Denver Tech Center in Denver. The winner of the award will receive a cash award, a plaque and recognition in the Alzheimer’s Association newsletter.

  • Family or friends of individuals receiving care must make nominations.
  • Nominees should provide direct care to people with Alzheimer’s. Please do not nominate supervisory personnel such as nurses and/or activity directors.
  • You may wish to nominate more than one person.  However, you must use a separate form for each person as this award is for an individual, not a group of individuals.
