To the superheroes out there,
To the tens of millions of family caregivers who take time off and adapt their professional lives to help a loved one. Who reshape their personal budgets—often spending a fifth of their incomes—to cover expenses. Who make travel arrangements and coordinate care services despite busy, sporadic schedules.
To the many incredible professionals who make it possible for our senior friends and family members to live safely and comfortably in their own homes. Who spend countless hours taking care of not only their physical health, but their mental well-being, too.
To the community and professional senior services—like United Way, local health centers and our in-home care client, Right at Home—working hard to make caregiving, social, food, housing and medical resources more accessible. And empowering our families with their well-trained, warmhearted advisors and caregivers.
In case you didn’t know, today is Caregiver Appreciation Day—a moment to show our thanks to those who give so much. A day to reflect upon the dedication our family, friends and professional caregivers have. Having a loved one in need of caregiving services isn’t easy. But thankfully, there are many willing to sacrifice their lives to make ours easier.
So, to all those taking care of our children, seniors and the disabled each and every day, whether that’s putting clothes on their backs or performing complex medical and nursing tasks, thank you.
We hope you know how much you and your constant support means.
A very appreciative agency
