This month we should not only celebrate Thanksgiving but also give thanks to the 65 million caregivers in US who continue to serve and care for another every day of the year! That’s right, you heard us… according to an article in the Huffington Post, “today, 29 percent of the entire population of the United States — that’s 65 million people — provides care for another person.”
Even if you’re one of the 65 million people caring for someone, you may not know that November is National Caregivers Month. Aileen Gitelson in her article notes that many caregivers are suffering under the emotional, physical and financial burden of family caregiving to the tune of $375 billion per year.
