November is National Family Caregivers Month. Across the US, around 39.8 million people provide 21 or more hours of unpaid care each week to an adult with a disability or illness.
Caregiver Action Network began promoting national recognition of family caregivers in 1994, and is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the county. Celebrating this time enables us to raise awareness of family caregiver issues, celebrate the efforts of family caregivers, educate family caregivers about self-identification, and increase support for family caregivers.
