The Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging is a national organization that pursues innovation in practice and policy aimed at addressing important issues of aging. As a champion for older adults, BRIA works to advance their health, independence, and dignity.
The institute is inviting nominations for its 2017 Innovation in Caring Award, which recognizes innovative ideas that have resulted in improvements in care and increased comfort for those receiving care.
The annual award recognizes adults (age 18 and over) who, in the course of caring for an adult age 60 or over in a private home or a residential setting, has invented a device or technique that solves a caregiving challenge, or who has found a new application for an existing device or technique that supports caregiving and eases the burden on caregivers.
Up to three award winners will receive a commemorative plaque and a check for $1,000.
See the BRIA website for complete award guidelines, information about previous award recipients, and nomination instructions.
