Hello Cara,

November is National Family Caregivers Month.

Providing care for loved ones is often fulfilling, but being a caregiver can be overwhelming and an incredibly stressful role. In fact, 47% of caregivers experience anxiety and 42% experience depression. Held every November, National Family Caregivers Month was created to share appreciation for family caregivers around the country. Caregivers are superstars and it’s important for them to take care of their own well-being and to understand that their health matters just as much as those for whom they care.  

This month, reach out to any friends or family members who are acting as caregivers. Share these inspiring stories and articles below, and offer to lend a hand, whether it be helping with a busy schedule, lending an ear or even cooking dinner. Sometimes even the smallest gesture can make a huge impact.

I hope you are well and I look forward to connecting with you soon,
