For Caregivers

Happy National Nurses Day!

Today is National Nurses Day and the first day of National Nurses Week! Do you have a nurse or nurses that have contributed to keeping you healthy and well? We bet you do. Today, and this week, is the perfect time to express your gratitude for their hard work and dedication. Nurses have a passion for helping others and a drive to carry them through a hectic, long, and often thankless work day. Ironically, more nurses have been facing health issues themselves due to stress, poor nutrition, and difficult work demands. Nurses can face life, death, joy, and pain head-on during just one shift. It is of the utmost importance that we all take the time to make sure they know how much they are appreciated.
