Did you know that November is "National Family Caregivers" Month (NFCM)?
It's a time to honor America's family caregivers, raise awareness about caregiving issues, and (hopefully!) increase support nationwide for caregivers.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, "Families are the primary source of support for older adults and people with disabilities in the U.S."
Interestingly, DHS also points out that nearly half of all family caregivers in America are over the age 50.
So, this November, please make sure to say an extra big "thank you" to the family caregivers in your life.
And if you are the caregiver in your family, UCP Oregon wants to thank you for your hard work. We see you, and we appreciate you.
