There are many designated caregiver appreciation days and even a whole month in a calendar year. Some of these designated recognition days are for informal, unpaid, or family caregivers while others are meant for professional caregivers.
March 3 is a day of recognition for both paid and unpaid caregivers. With millions of caregivers around the world, it’s important to acknowledge how they bring smiles, lift spirits, maintain dignity, and improve well-being for others. Here are tips on giving thanks to the caregiver in your life:
Caregiving can be a thankless task for many people so make sure to praise the person who shows they care so often for another.
There might be some jobs out there better suited to a specific age in life, but caregiving can—and is—done by people from all ages and stages of life.
It might be time to start thinking about being together again. Well-being is not just about exercise and nutrition, but also relationships and emotional sturdiness.
Too much caregiving without support can lead to burnout and other ailments for a family caregiver. Learn how to avoid injury, stress, and maintain well-being.
