Local senior community holds caregiver relief contest


Clare Bridge of Carmel, a Brookdale Senior Living retirement community, is holding an essay contest for caregivers as part of their Caregivers Relief Program. The winner will receive a two-week respite stay at the community for their family member or loved one.

To nominate the caregiver and their loved one, tell their story in an essay not exceeding 1,000 words in length. To submit a story or to read the rules and qualifications, visit www.brookdaleliving.com/carefelief.

Stories can also be submitted in person at the community, 301 Executive Dr., Carmel. The submitted essays will be judged by an expert panel that will look for creative expression, ability to engage the reader, and examples of the caring relationship between the caregiver and loved one. Caregivers, family members and friends are encouraged to submit nominations.

Nominations will be accepted through September 30.
