National Caregivers Month - 'Resource Reminder'

Family Caregiver Alliance

Caring for a parent, spouse, adult child, partner or friend with a chronic health problem is an every-day affair.  Sometimes boring, sometimes unreasonable, sometimes over-the-top demanding, sometimes rewarding . . . and always on your mind.

Knowledge about a health condition, guidance to providing the best care, and special tips for support and self-care, can pave the way for a smoother road ahead.

We know how hard you work, and want to acknowledge your role as caregiver to someone important to you. As a special thank you for all you do—and to remind you of the various ways that FCA can be there for you—we’re posting this special ‘resource reminder’ blog entry as our way of wishing you a wonderful National Caregivers Month.

    I am pleased to see that Nov is caregiver month. My wife does not work and takes care of my moms medicine and her insulin shot daily.
    I watch moms finances and help out on my days off.
    It is so true that it is on my mind all the time. I do something for a distraction and I get pulled back in reality and responibility of caregiving that the joy of the distraction is almost nill.
