Caregivers rewarded through essay contest

COAST CITIES — The Home Instead Senior Care office serving North County is sponsoring a “Give a Caregiver a Break” essay contest to honor family caregivers for their tireless service and dedication.
In 500 words or less, nonprofessional family caregivers can relate their caregiving experiences, including the challenges they’ve faced, how they’ve embraced their role as a caregiver for a senior loved one and inspired others. Entries can be submitted until June 15. The grand prize is $5,000 of free care from Home Instead Senior Care. Two first prize winners will each receive $2,500 of free care from Home Instead Senior Care. Complete rules can be found online at or
