There are perhaps 2,300 days and months in the USA in recognition of some notion or cause. Some are frivolous such as Banana Pudding Lovers month and Ampersand Day. Those two are just goofy, of course, but many recognition days and months have real and important meaning for real people. November, for instance, is National Family Caregivers Month.
A family caregiver is anyone who provides any type of physical and/or emotional care for an ill or disabled loved one at home. This includes a lot of people. There are more hundreds of dementia caregivers in Lincoln Hills than the some 200 who are on our group’s roster. Add to that an untold number of unacknowledged caregivers for spouses, siblings, children or parents who are suffering with or recovering from heart ailments, cancer, surgical procedures, debilitating illness or injury, or not-so-simple frailty.
Our group and the Lincoln Hills Foundation acknowledge all our caregivers, and the gift of any support they receive from other family members and friends. Bravo.
