November is National Family Caregivers Month.

New research from AARP suggests that caregiving can take a tremendous toll on the caregiver’s personal health and overall well-being. Yet, many caregivers can be reluctant to ask for help.

AARP has a wonderful set of online resources about caregiving that you won’t want to miss. There is even a great article from Dr. Nancy Snyderman about her experience becoming the caregiver for her mom and dad.

Many Thanks

And, if you know a caregiver who could use a pat on the back, check out the ThanksProject.org, where you can share a message of thanks with a caregiver you know and post it publicly alongside other messages from people across the country to illustrate the number of caregivers nationwide.

If you are a caregiver, let me say “Thank you!” You are making a tremendous difference in the life of your loved one. Know that you are not alone. There are resources to help.

And the entire 3GenFamily Blog Community is cheering you on!
