November is National Family Caregivers Month

Dana Halvorson

November is National Family Caregivers Month, and Caregiver Action Network sets the theme for it each year.  The 2018 theme is “Supercharge Your Caregiving”.  More background on National Family Caregivers Month can be found here.  According to AARP, about 40 million family caregivers provide about $470 billion annually in unpaid care to their loved ones.  About 3.7 million family caregivers provide care to a child under age 18 because of a medical, behavioral, or other condition or disability, and 6.5 million family caregivers assist both adults and children.
