November is “National Family Caregivers Month”
In case you didn’t know it— November is “National Family Caregivers Month”.
According to the National Alliance for Caregiving, more than than 65 million people (29% of the U.S. population), provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care for their loved one.
For 15 years, the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA), has recognized and celebrated family caregivers. Identifying Family Caregivers! is the theme for National Family Caregivers Month 2011.
Theracycle is an ardent supporter of “National Family Caregivers Month,” and we hope you’ll join us in supporting the mission of the NFCA to educate, support, empower and speak up for the millions of Americans who give so much of themselves to provide for the health and well-being of a beloved family member.
