Thank you to all who have submitted a hero in your home! 2018 submissions are being reviewed and will be posted in January. 

Information on the 2019 Heroes in the Home will be shared in the months coming up. 


Do you have someone in your life who is a hero?

  • The neighbour who shovels your driveway.
  • The personal support worker who makes you laugh, even in tough times.
  • The family member who provides loving care 24/7.
  • The care coordinator who takes time to listen and share.
  • The volunteer who delivers smiles along with the meals.

These are just a few of the people who go above and beyond to provide care at home and in our community. They are unsung and often unseen heroes

The Waterloo Wellington Heroes in the Home is an opportunity to recognize the special people who care for you or your loved ones.

It’s simple, here’s how it works: 

Anyone can make a nomination (see the next page for the form).  Tell us why you think your nominee is special. Nominees will be recognized annually. Your nominee and a guest will be invited to one of two events (one in Guelph-Wellington and one in Waterloo Region in the Fall of 2018) to receive their certificate and be publicly recognized. During the event, your nominee will receive a special certificate and Heroes in the Home pin.
