If you or someone you know is a devoted family caregiver, you understand the stress that comes with caring for a senior loved one each day. That’s why residents of Horry and Georgetown Counties are invited to purchase raffle tickets for deserving family caregivers – or themselves – for the opportunity to win a free, five-day cruise.

The local Home Instead Senior Care® office is sponsoring the cruise for one lucky caregiving hero and guest. Raffle tickets will be available at the local Home Instead Senior Care office, located at 4325 Dick Pond Rd., Ste. D in Myrtle Beach. Entries will be accepted through October 5th.

The five-night, six-day Caregiver Stress Management Cruise is scheduled for Jan. 21-26, 2012, on the Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas. The cruise will set sail from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with stops in Belize City and Cozumel. In addition to the cruise, valued at up to $4,000, the winning recipient and guest will receive 20 hours of free care from a Home Instead Senior Care professional CAREGiverSM for their senior loved one while they are away.

“We know that caring for an aging loved one can be a rewarding experience, but it also can be very stressful,” said Vicki Berg, of the Home Instead Senior Care office that serves Horry and Georgetown Counties. “That’s why we’re so happy to sponsor this contest, which will give a deserving family caregiver a much needed break.”
