National Family Caregivers Month: Presidential Proclamation

Caregivers for seniors are now included in a month of recognition, officially annonced by President Barack Obama.  From our president:

As we observe National Family Caregivers Month, we honor the tireless compassion of Americans who heal, comfort, and support our injured, our elders, and people with disabilities. This month and throughout the year, let the quiet perseverance of our family caregivers remind us of the decency and kindness to which we can all aspire.

The Presidential Proclamation in honor of National Family Caregivers Month, will encourage community organizations to offer programs to honor family caregivers and brings a spotlight to the work. You can view the text of the proclamation here and see additional background, including this year’s Theme for National Family Caregivers Month and additional pertinent press releases and background here.

If you are considering becoming a professional senior caregiver, having personal experience is always an asset.  You can research C.N.A. schools and find a caregiving job in your area to begin your career.
