I recently received an email from a counselor alerting me to the fact that November is National Family Caregivers Month. You may want to check out the website www.theFamilyCaregiver.org for more information.
Caregivers are those who take care of people who cannot take care of themselves, which would include everyone in the nursing/nursing home/hospital profession. However, I generally think of them as family members or people hired by family members to help with a loved one.
The task is awesome and often frustrating. Caregivers are often more stressed out than the people they care for. If you know a caregiver, maybe you can lend a helping hand and give him/her a few hours or a day off so s/he can have some R & R. If you are a caregiver, give yourself a pat on the back.
So this month, let’s salute the caregivers of the world with a big Thank You. Maybe send him or her a nice bouquet, like these flowers below. If you are the caregivers, treat yourself to the bouquet. It will brighten your day.
