Did you know that November is National Caregiver month? Well it is! Do you know someone who is a caregiver to a family member, friend, or loved one who is ailing with a chronic disease, terminal disease, or limited because of some handicap? If you do then take a moment to recognize these people and do something nice for them!

Caregivers are unique individuals blessed with a special spirit and love to offer the ongoing support and care they do. It is not easy to be on call and available 24/7 but these people do it because of the special type of people they are. Some take it on as a part of their daily life because their partner has taken ill, been in an accident, or been diagnosed with a disease. Others volunteer or offer to help out with specified times or when they can. Sometimes their job is a thankless one and not wholly appreciated by the person they’re caring for. Yet caregivers go on attempting to understand what it must be like being the one living with a disease or illness day in and day out.

So this month take notice of the caregivers you may know. Recognizing their hard work with a thank you is a very nice gesture. But do more than that if you can. Take them out to lunch or dinner or bring it in and enjoy a meal together, offer to provide a few hours of care and give them some time off, provide a gift card of some sort and then offer to be the caregiver while they enjoy the gift card, offer to help out with much needed tasks or chores, or think of something unique on your own! Caregivers need caring for too! Let’s not forget all they do for us.

Yours in health,
