Good Indeed! Mark Lee of Indianapolis was named the 2014 Caregiver of the Year by CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions. He is one of the estimated 65.7 million people in the United States who provide care for an elderly or disabled family member. Mark took care of his father, who had Alzheimer's and emphysema, and shared stories about his dad on his Facebook page, and later, in a NUVO Newsweekly blog. After his dad’s passing, Mark started working on a book, tentatively titled “Raising Dad”. The CICOA Caregiver of the Year Award honors one personal caregiver in Central Indiana who models courage, sacrifice, strength and creativity while caring for another.
