Wall of Caring and Honor

An Opportunity to Show Care and Honor

Created in 2002, The Wall of Caring honors a tradition of care and respect for the field by and for PALTC Practitioners who band together to raise funds for the Futures Program, a PALTC workforce development initiative, while honoring someone special in their own individual professional or personal lives.

Donors may honor the memory of a mentor, colleague, or loved one, while those being recognized will receive a notice of the honor and be listed on the physical wall of caring at the 2022 AMDA Annual Conference and the PALTC Foundation website.

Please take a moment to honor or memorialize someone special to your profession or life while helping another Futures Candidate further their career as a PALTC candidate.

Make your gift today for 2022 Wall of Caring & Honor
