We’re looking for stories of hope, love and dedication.

AARP believes family caregivers stories aren’t celebrated nearly enough. Because of your tireless efforts, older parents, spouses and other loved ones can remain in their homes. It’s a labor of love, to be sure, and sometimes more than a full-time job. It’s time the world got a better picture of just what it means to be you.

That’s why we’re launching a new phase of the I Heart Caregivers story-telling initiative, called Portraits of Care. To honor and recognize family caregivers all around the country, AARP will randomly select​* one caregiver from each of the 53 U.S. states and territories to receive a Portrait of Care, an artist’s painting of you and your loved one.  Help get the word out, entries accepted through September 30!

We’re recognizing the meal givers, the medicine givers, the compassion givers. To all caregivers, thank you for the vital work you do. #iheartcaregivers
