National Family Caregivers Month: Nominate a caregiver in your life

This segment is produced with and sponsored by AARP.

November is National Family Caregivers Month. It is a time to celebrate all the people who are selflessly caring for a loved one without being paid, and giving them a home to be a part of. There are more than 41 million family caregivers in the U.S., over 1 million here in Illinois.

AARP is dedicated to our seniors with support and resources to help. They also have launched a contest with WLIT iHeart Radio called "Celebrate Family Caregivers." It is a contest where you can nominate an outstanding caregiver that you know. He or she has a chance at winning one of four $500.00 prizes, or the grand prize - $1000 and be named "Caregiver of the Year." All the winners will be featured right here on Windy City LIVE!

Check out the contest here on WLIT iHeart Radio's website.
