There are just two weeks left to get your nominations in for the Armagh I People of the Year Awards in association with Alora Rejuvenation for Carer of the Year.
This category is open to any person in a paid or non-paid role who provides care for another person.
Previous winners of this category include Philip Johnston on caring for dad in final days of Parkinson’s and Catriona Kelly. Catriona was nominated by her cousin Ciara Sheridan, who stated in her nomination: “Catriona moved home from London with her partner after her mum began showing signs of dementia in order to help her father who was also in poor health”.
“When the pandemic hit, Catriona’s father, who had a leg ulcer, was reluctant to attend appointments for fear of catching Covid-19 and passing it on to his wife”.
