A Thanksgiving Note to Caregivers

The intention of this blog is to take a mile-high view of the elder care industry. But life is not lived in the stratosphere, it is lived on the ground by all of us trying to the best we can with the resources at our disposal.

On this Thanksgiving, I express my thanks  for the very special people who are caring for those who cannot care for themselves.

Under the best circumstances, being a caregiver is a difficult and task and this Caregiver Bill of Rights serves as a reminder that caregivers must also care for themselves. If you are a caregiver, please take it to heart, and if you know a caregiver please share this simple reminder that none of us can do it all.

A happy and peaceful Thanksgiving holiday to you and those you love,

    I agree we should all send out a big thank you to caregivers. They do a tremendous job of caring for our nation's seniors. I also want to send a shout out to ClearCare who keeps our seniors' safe. Thanks to ClearCare's care management software, families are able to stay involved in their aging parents' care and completely aware of what's going on during the day. It reduces the risk for elder abuse and fraud and goes a long way for providing peace of mind.
