FAMILY Carers Ireland is delighted to team up with Netwatch for the “Netwatch Carer of the Year Awards 2019”.
Headquartered in Carlow, Netwatch are global leaders in proactive visual monitoring and provide protection and peace of mind for businesses in Ireland, the UK and the US.
Now in their 13th year, the awards seek to recognise, celebrate and shine a light on the remarkable contribution of Ireland’s 355,000 family carers – almost two-thirds of whom provide more than 100 hours of care per week.
The critical role of family carers in keeping their loved ones safe and protected in their own homes resonated with management and staff at Netwatch whose mission is to create a “fearless environment” for all its customers.
The Netwatch Carer of the Year and Young Carers of the Year become ambassadors and represent family carers all over Ireland – many of whom are struggling in silence due to a lack of supports and services.
The Netwatch Carer of the Year Awards 2019 will be presented at a gala awards ceremony hosted by broadcasters and Family Carers Ireland patrons Mary Kennedy and Marty Whelan in The Westin Hotel, Dublin on Friday, November 22.
