November is National Caregiver Month

Started by

As a caregiver myself, I would like to honor all caregivers and thank them for the sacrifice, patience, compassion and love that you display on a daily basis. Unless you are a caregiver, you cannot imagine how difficult the job is, and for those who continue to provide daily (and nightly) care to their loved ones, THANK YOU!

Thanks. I appreciate that acknowledgment and I'm sure others will too. It's not often that we are recognized and honored for what we do.
That is awful nice of you to say thank you to all of us caregivers you included. everybody out there know it is not a easy job. Everybody just hang in there.
Take Care all...................

Yes, caregiving is indeed a unique experience. It definitely changed my perspective on life. I never really saw things like I do now. It really wakes you up and causes you appreciate things so much more, imo. Many thanks to all those who care and give of themselves.
Yeah for us!! We do rock,, even when we feel like we are being rolled!
Thank you so much!
Thanks for putting that out there into the Universe...I know many of us could use just a little bit of encouragement, even if it comes from someone we don't even know personally,l but in action or in situation...or 'IVE BEEN THERE's' So, HAPPY CARETAKER MONTH TO US ALL!!! REVEL in the fact that You're MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THEIR LIVES, and it will make a difference in yours too one day
The below quote reminds me of all the caregivers out there...

"Here is to all the people who get back up more times than they are knocked down, Who give more than they ever expect to receive, Who still show love to others, even though their own heart is broken, Who smile through the sad times, Who light the way for others, Who spread laughter and joy. Thank you for making the world a better place."

Happy Caregivers Month all!
THANK YOU! Its been a journey but I would not have it any other way. May God Bless all the caregivers out here including me! We are AWESOME!
Second that sentiment:
""Here is to all the people who get back up more times than they are knocked down, Who give more than they ever expect to receive, Who still show love to others, even though their own heart is broken, Who smile through the sad times, Who light the way for others, Who spread laughter and joy. Thank you for making the world a better place."


YAY!
Appreciation to all of our caregiving family on this forum, and to all the caregivers who have stayed on after the loss of loved ones. A special recognition to the caregivers of caregivers! There are no words to express how much you mean to me!

Have a great National Caregiver's Month!
