National Family Caregivers Month

President Obama has proclaimed November National Family Caregivers Month. Day in and day out, more than 65 million family caregivers in this country fulfill a vital role on the care team. No one else is in a better position to ensure continuity of care. Family caregivers are the most familiar with their care recipients’ medicine regimen; they are the most knowledgeable about the treatment regimen; and they understand best the dietary and exercise regimen. If you are caring for a family member the National Family Caregivers Association's website offers tips and resources for caregivers. (Photo Courtesy of Associated Press)
