Did you know that November is Caregiver Appreciation Month? Over 50 million Americans are caregivers, and we want to say thank you! So many people are safer, healthier, and more comfortable because of the hard work of caregivers. The services they provide amounts to a value of around $375 billion a year, even though the majority of caregivers help care for their loved ones for free. Close to 90% of caregivers care for a relative, and according to AARP the Millennial, Gen X, and Baby Boomer generations make up roughly equal parts of the caregiver population. It’s a physically and emotionally challenging job, so it’s important to take the time to support the caregivers in your life.
