Caregiving can be a 24-7 commitment — and it’s one of the toughest jobs around. National Family Caregivers Month recognizes that caregivers have to take care of themselves to take care of their loved ones, despite the many roles they play. If you’re a caregiver, you may feel tired, frustrated and uncertain. Caring for yourself, avoiding burnout and staying refreshed may not be top of mind, but they’re some of the things that matter most.
During Natoinal Family Caregiver Month, the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association offers materials and resources to help, such as the Caregiver Guide to Stroke and the Financial Consequences of Stroke Caregiving. During Natoinal Family Caregiver Month, we honor caregivers across North Dakota for fulfilling this important role within families. For more on Honoring the Caregiver, CLICK HERE.
