September Caregiver of the Month – Vickie Failor
Vickie Failor has been chosen as Missouri’s Caregiver of the Month for September! Vickie was the caregiver for her father in law, Francis, in order to keep him out of a nursing home. She made sure he aged with dignity and respect in the comfort of his own home. To read Vickie’s story, go to health.mo.gov/seniors/caregiver.php. Here you will also find the nomination form and resources for caregivers.
If you know someone who puts his/her life on hold to care for a family member or friend, DHSS invites you to nominate them today for the Caregiver of the Month. In December, an overall Caregiver of the Year will be selected.
