What’s a caregiver?
A caregiver provides regular, consistent care for another person without being paid or requiring something in return. For the BRAVE Awards, a caregiver is defined as a non-professional, and is not someone employed as a professional caregiver or healthcare provider. A caregiver for the BRAVE Awards may be a relative, neighbor or friend who gives their time, support and compassion regularly and consistently to help someone unable to care for him or herself due to health and wellness issues, injury or other extenuating circumstance.
