The theme for National Family Caregivers Month 2014 is
“Care Comes Home”
Your loved one’s care does not always take place in hospitals, or nursing homes, or doctors' offices, or medical clinics. Most care actually occurs in the home – and that’s a good thing. People are healthier at home and health care costs are reduced. Family caregivers have the best interests of their loved ones at heart. But caregiving at home can take its toll and it certainly takes a lot of planning. The Nation’s 90 million family caregivers are front and center in providing care every day – enabling their loved ones to stay at home longer where they are happier and healthier.
During National Family Caregivers Month,
we celebrate the valuable role that family caregivers play when
Care Comes Home!
