A bit of background…
L’Oréal Paris has awarded our own Marian Hamilton, founder of the Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center at Northern Westchester Hospital, with the prestigious honor of being a 2016 Women of Worth, an award that recognizes women who are making an extraordinary difference in the world. As a recipient, the KHCC has been awarded $10,000 by L’Oreal Paris.


Hamilton says, “We are thrilled about this amazing recognition and the grant, which is so helpful for the essential work being done at the Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center.”

Marian Hamilton is a champion for the caregiver-–the invisible patient. Her vision for the Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center was revolutionary, and bringing it to life was no small feat. The Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center is dedicated to the support and well-being of the family caregiver, those not only caring for inpatients and outpatients at Northern Westchester Hospital, where she founded the program, but also for thousands of community members who are caring for a loved one with a serious illness. The KHCC provides a place of respite within the hospital for caregivers to relax and recharge and offers supportive counseling, help navigating the complex healthcare system, access to community resources and comfort. Most importantly, these services are provided for free. And, as a testament to the prevalent national need for these services, the KHCC model has now been replicated by 12 other hospitals across the U.S.

Now the Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center has the opportunity to win an additional $25,000, but they need your help. There will be a public online vote for the National Women of Worth Honoree beginning on October 10. They need your vote to help win this additional grant which will further the efforts of the Caregivers Center which has become an essential resource for so many in our community.

Since its creation the Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center has had over 50,000 thousand family interactions with those in our community. Your vote will go a long way in ensuring that they continue to serve thousands more during a time of great need.


We are grateful for your efforts to help support all family caregivers.
