National Family Caregivers Month

National Family Caregivers Month, observed every November, is a nationally recognized month celebrated to draw attention to the many challenges facing family caregivers, advocate for stronger public policy to address family caregiving issues, and raise awareness about community programs that support family caregivers. There are more than 50 million family caregivers across the country.

The National Family Caregiver Association encourages family caregivers to take three steps every day to make their lives easier, improve care and raise awareness about the issues that family caregivers face – believe in yourself, protect your health, and reach out for help.

The Kentucky River Family Caregiver Program offers services to caregivers providing care for individuals 60 years of age or older, as well as services to grandparents providing care to grandchildren under age 18. For more information, call the Kentucky River Area Development District at (606) 436-3158.
