Nominees for caregivers deserving of special recognition are being sought by the Community Elder Wellness Council and Oneida County Office for the Aging and Continuing Care.

Caregivers will be honored at the seventh annual Celebrating Life program Nov. 2 at Hart’s Hill Inn, Whitesboro.

The three categories of caregivers being saluted are:

• The Community Caregiver award, honors a community caregiver whose leadership spans across multiple populations.

• The Professional Caregiver category, which recognizes a paid health care professional, like an employee of a hospital, nursing facility or home care agency.

• The Informal Caregiver award, which salutes honors an unpaid caregiver, usually a family member, friend or neighbor.

The deadline for submissions is Sept. 25. For more information, visit the Office for the Aging web page, www.ocgov.net, or call 315-798-5456.
