November is National Family Caregivers Month

National Family Caregivers Month, celebrated every November, is a time to recognize and honor the invaluable contributions of family caregivers. These dedicated individuals selflessly provide care and support to their loved ones facing illness, disability, or aging. Their efforts ensure the well-being and comfort of those they care for, often at personal sacrifice. National Family Caregivers Month serves as an opportunity to express gratitude for these unsung heroes while also raising awareness about the need for continued caregiver resources and support.

Read more about National Family Caregivers Month and how Trellis is celebrating in this story from ElderCare Development Partnership Coordinator Sarah Adams. Please pass it along and thank a caregiver in your life!
