Paying Thanks to Caregivers

In light of National Family Caregiver Month, take a moment to recognize the enormous contribution of family caregivers—the 65 million-plus who care for a spouse, family member or friend.

The monetary value of their work is over 375 billion a year which is more than the yearly Medicaid spending for long term care for all states.

Family caregivers interrupt their careers, give their time, money and sometimes risk their health to care for those they love. Join me in thanking our caregivers; let’s let them know we recognize their hard work.
