On caregivers, faith, family, and writing…

In addition to being the month in which we celebrate Thanksgiving, November is National Family Caregiver Month. Caregivers are the unsung heroes who work quietly in the background, seeing that Dad’s bank account is in order, making sure Mom’s house is cleaned, being sure a loved one has a hot meal on the table. This special month shines a spotlight on those who give up so much and receive so little in return. If you’re a caregiver, take a few minutes to visit aarp.org/caregiving to see what resources are available to make your job a little easier. If you know a caregiver, take minute to say thank you.

  1. Reblogged this on Long-term Care Diary and commented:
    I found this wonderful blog post today while reading on caregiving and long-term care. Just felt I had to share it to remind people how a simple “Thank You” goes a long way in giving strength to family caregivers out there. Your personal involvement in a loved one’s care greatly improves their situation. http://bit.ly/17Tkk7U

    • Thank you for the re-blog, and may God bless your caregiving journey.

      • Thank you for writing about your experiences, too. I was attracted to your blog because of the title. I was also a caregiver before for my dad and life was never the same after that. I hope I can share more of your wisdom 🙂
        God bless!
