November - National Family Caregiver Month

November - National Family Caregiver Month

As a caregiver do you feel frustration, irritation, anger, even guilty? Guess what? According to the experts that's normal during the course of caregiving. The challenge is for you to recognize this and learn how to manage it. I hope you find something in this post that will help you.

This is from the Support Network website: http://supportnetwork.heart.org




On some devices the two following links will download a pdf file if you open with your browser. If you get the choice, it might be best to open with a pdf viewer, if you have one, otherwise you'll have to search your device for the pdf file, but it will be worth it.

Also...Give thanks to your unsung hero!
Caregivers give so much of their time, their hearts and themselves to the people they care for. They ensure the big and little things are taken care of for you during recovery – from brushing your hair to driving to doctor visits. November is National Family Caregivers Month and we are urging you to honor the caregiver in your life by posting their picture and a thank you note on the Support Network.

Instructions: Participation is simple!
1. Take a picture of your caregiver, be as creative as you like.

2. Email it to SupportNetwork@heart.org. We will tag it with a Caregiver “Thank you” frame and upload it, plus your Thank you note here on the photo gallery
designed especially for this:

3. Once it’s up we will send you an email so you can let your caregiver know about it.

Submit your photos to us between November 1st and November 30th.
