Chicago caregivers may run into this bunny car, parked in downtown Chicago, this weekend. Enjoy the holiday weekend, whatever your religion may be. Sending wishes of Spring to all caregivers!

Remember that caregiver stress is real, so take time for a smile and if you would like to share your caregiving story with others, please do so, as we welcome more individuals to become professional senior caregivers and apply for a caregiving job as more caregivers are needed!
