Happy National Family Caregiver Month!
November brings a month-long time to celebrate and honor the family caregivers that work day in and day out for their loved ones. Happy National Family Caregivers Month! We recognize and herald the love, compassion, time and care that family caregivers selflessly offer to their loved ones. Whether caring for an aging parent with Alzheimer’s, or a child with autism, the demands of caregiving can be constant throughout the day.
President Clinton signed the first National Family Caregiver Month Presidential Proclamation in 1997. For the last twenty years, this celebration has been recognized at a national level to appreciate and honor family caregivers each November.
The Colorado Respite Coalition will be celebrating National Family Caregivers Month with weekly emails based on this year’s theme. We will provide intriguing articles to read, tools and tips to help, and truly celebrate the valiant work that family caregivers provide, day in and day out.
