People think of heroes as George Washington, Margaret Thatcher, and Paul Revere. At Stay At Home our heroes are the countless Americans who care for adult family members. Day in and day out, more than 65 million family caregivers in our country fill the vital role of caregiver for an elderly, ill or disabled loved one.
Being a caregiver is one of the hardest, most selfless jobs while receiving little to no acknowledgement for it. While the position is very rewarding, the impacts are emotionally, physically, and financially draining. So during this month of November, remember your friends and family members who are caring for loved ones. Reach out to these caregivers and encourage them to stay the course. Let them know that they are true heroes.
