Seeking nominations for 2nd annual Cowlitz/Wahkiakum Senior Heroes Awards

If you know someone who goes above and beyond in helping older adults in our community, nominate them for a Senior Hero Award. A senior hero is a person who serves older adults with excellence and compassion. This is a great way to honor local champions who are dedicated to serving older adults. Nominations are open through September 30 and can be submitted online at

Three award categories are available.

A Caregiver of the Year is any professional caregiver who has provided exemplary caregiver service to older adults. The person should demonstrate a caregiving career that values service to others and provides an exceptional level of care to older adults. They might be a CNA, NAR, HCA, or individual provider.

The Senior Champion Award is given to any individual that advocates for the rights and well-being of older adults in the community. They are looking for a person that goes to bat for their client or neighbor and beyond what is expected. This category can include legal, financial, and fiduciary professionals as well as guardians, case managers, and everyday citizens.

The Community Hero Award goes to any individual that is in service to older adults and has an unparalleled dedication to the health and wellbeing of that individual. For example, a family caregiver, a fitness expert, or a person that has a passion for service to seniors.

Being nominated for a Senior Heroes Award is a significant honor. Winners and nominees can list this achievement on a resume or LinkedIn profile. Winners will receive an award, recognition by civic leaders, and be featured on
