Celebrate Caregiver Month!

“Family members, friends, and neighbors devote countless hours to providing care to their relatives or loved ones. During National Family Caregivers Month, we recognize and thank the humble heroes who do so much to keep our families and communities strong.”

President Barack Obama, NFC Month Proclamation 2012

November celebrates National Family Caregiver month and is a time to celebrate, recognize and reward family caregivers for all you do.

To celebrate YOU this month think about taking a much needed break and how that may be possible. Want to brainstorm ideas on how to do this?? Call the Caregiver Specialist at your local ASAP.

Here are some other ideas for you to do to reward yourself this month for all your hard work:

Go to the movies
Go for a long walk
Join a support group
Start a yoga class
Read a good book

BayPath Elder Services Caregiver Program will be celebrating with a night for Caregivers on November 29th 6-8pm featuring a conversation presentation with Author Deborah Strafuss who shares her stories and poems of her experiences caring for her mother who had Alzheimer’s. Come and enjoy the conversation as well as a raffle and refreshments. Call myself, Alicia Rego 508-573-7239, for more info!

Happy Caregiver month to all!
