Your Turn To Care proudly puts the spotlight on family caregivers, those individuals who often are unexpectedly placed in a situation where they are the primary caregivers for an elderly family member or friend. The role can be challenging, full of unknowns and missteps, but it can also be incredibly fulfilling and life changing. Caregivers featured on the series have shared their stories, struggles, and in the process let other caregivers know that they are not alone on their journey.
President Obama's official proclamation states, "National Family Caregivers Month, is a time to reflect on the compassion and dedication that family caregivers embody every day. As we offer our appreciation and admiration for their difficult work, let us also extend our own offers of support to them and their loved ones."
Join us in thanking family caregivers this November by sharing resources and vital information with them. Your Turn To Care is happy to welcome guest columnists, Estee Bienstock RN, Chaplain Jim Johnston, and Gerontologist Mary Winners to share their personal and professional insights and advice for caregivers and their families. In addition to these articles look for our regular features that celebrate and support the 45 million family caregivers.
