November is National Family Caregivers Month
This month we take time to celebrate the immense contributions of friends and family who support a loved one by volunteering their time to help them manage their health and wellness. There are more than 44 million Americans who care for a family member, friend, or neighbor. According to the National PACE Association, up to 70% of the time, the family caregiver manages the medications for their loved one, and 6 out of 10 family caregivers work full or part time in addition to juggling their caregiving responsibilities at home. Being the caregiver for someone else is a huge job that takes time, money, and lots of love and patience. Many of the individuals we serve here at Fidelity House have AMAZING caregivers that help them lead the most fulfilling life possible. We could not do what we do everyday without their consistent help, love, and support. How fitting that November starts on a #ThankfulThursday this year!
