VALENCIA, Calif., Oct. 14 — Shield Healthcare, a leading
provider of medical supplies for care at home, is pleased to announce its 9th
annual story contest on “What Makes Caregiving Rewarding?” designed to
recognize and hear the voice of caregivers and home healthcare professionals,
featuring celebrity contest judge, Sandra Mitchell of KCAL 9/CBS 2 News.
Shield Healthcare understands that caregiving is a demanding job. A
significant number of our customers are family caregivers at home, tending to
a loved one with a chronic medical condition. They unselfishly take on the
challenge and responsibility of meeting the daily health and emotional needs
of the person in their care. This story contest is a positive way to recognize
and reward this important role. The contest runs through November 30, 2009 in
celebration of National Family Caregiver’s Month.

Last year’s winners included 3 mothers of special needs children, a nurse, and
a social worker. Winner Susan Agrawal wrote, “Among all the blessings that my
daughter has bestowed upon me, seeing her grow through inchstones has granted
me the best gift of all: the ability to see wonder and joy in the most
unexpected places.”

The top three story winners will receive $1000 in American Express Gift
Cheques and a 1-year subscription to Today’s Caregiver Magazine. The two
runner-ups will also be awarded the magazine subscription and $250 in American
Express Gift Cheques. All contest entries must be one-page, typed or
hand-written and postmarked by November 30, 2009. Entries should be mailed to
Shield Healthcare, Attn: Caring Solutions, 27911 Franklin Parkway, Valencia,
CA 91355 or emailed to Full contest details are
available on Shield’s website at
