A nationwide search for America's most talented grannies stopped in Northridge this week.
The competition, coupled with a long-term care awareness tour, was held at The Emeritus at Northridge, a retirement community at 17650 Devonshire St.
The winner will receive one free year of rent at any Emeritus community, with 11 runners-up each receiving one free week. The objective of the contest is to raise awareness about the need for Americans to better prepare for their long-term health care needs.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly 70 percent of Americans over 65 will need some form of long-term care. Yet most are unprepared for its financial and emotional impact.
