On October 31st, 2013, President Barack Obama issued a presidential proclamation recognizing November as National Family Caregivers Month. In his proclamation, the President discussed the importance of spotlighting the more than 60 million Americans who have answered the selfless call to care for our nation’s seniors and persons with disabilities and illnesses. The role these caregivers play is incredibly valuable to our healthcare system, and undeniably significant to those who benefit from their tireless work. Caregivers wear many hats, and the juggling act of balancing these sometimes conflicting roles can be challenging. Recognizing these heroes is imperative in supporting them and allowing them to realize that their efforts are respected.
