A lucky caregiver will receive a vacation cruise for two and care for their family member as first prize in a contest offered through a partnership between the Burbank-based Home Instead Senior Care, the Stroke Assn. of Southern California and the Los Angeles Caregiver Resource Center.
Burbank and Toluca Lake residents are invited to nominate family caregivers — or themselves — for the opportunity to win a free five-night, six-day Caribbean cruise for two. The caregiver must be providing care for a loved one who is 55 or older.
In addition, each of four runners-up will receive a gift certificate to a local spa and respite care for their family member.
Those entering the contest must write, in 500 words or less, the reasons why the nominated caregivers deserve to win. Nominations may be submitted online at www.homeinsteadcaregivercruise.com, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. They may also be mailed to Caregivercruise Getaway Contest, P.O. Box 2098, Santa Monica, CA, 90406.
