Caregivers are unsung heroes

Day in and day out, caregivers demonstrate these qualities and more. They are the backbone of our healthcare system.

These are just some of the qualities they possess:

  • Patience
  • Compassion
  • Humor
  • Cooperation
  • Advocacy
  • Empathy
  • Determination
  • Love


It’s rare that caregivers have an opportunity to proudly share their experiences, knowledge, perseverance and feelings with the general population.

Today, we are starting a weekly contest where caregivers can create and submit up to 5 videos per week.  Add music, memes, and your own voices to show how you care. A panel of judges will select the winner who will be honored and featured on all social media platforms.


  • A $200 prize will be awarded, the winner will be highlighted on the Caregiving Network blog and honored on all social media channels. 
  • This week’s topic is to produce a caregiving video that shows love, compassion, hope and inspiration.  
  • Next week, the topic will be a humorous caregiving video. 
  • Every week we will have a different theme and the prize will increase by $50 to $250.
  • In December, we will show all the winners, and ask you to vote for the best caregiving video of 2022.
  • The grand prize is $5,000.                              

We suggest you create a vertical video so it can be shown on all social media sites.

But if you have you have a compelling story to tell on Facebook or YouTube, you have 5 chances to win, so submit a longer video in horizonal mode as well as the vertical version.    The ideal time to be shown on all social media is 30 seconds or less.

­­These are the recommended times:

Facebook: 15 seconds to 2 minutes
YouTube: Up to 15 minutes
Linkedin 1-5 minutes
Reddit: Up to 15 seconds
Pinterest: 4 – 15 seconds
Instagram: IG story 1-7 slides
Instagram Grid Video: 60 seconds or less
Instagram Reels: less than 30 seconds
TikTok: 30 seconds or less
Twitter: 43-45 seconds

Our goal is to provide caregivers a way to share their journey, and for the public to be more aware of their sacrifices and courage and to understand how important it is for you to advocate for them.
