November 13th was Kindness day but it doesn’t end there.
Many caregivers say they feel alone and isolated. While family members and friends often ask how the care recipient is doing, they don’t always think to ask how the caregiver is doing. Caregivers have told us this simple gesture of kindness can make the difference in their day.
If you know a caregiver, this is an invitation to reach out to them, and have a conversation to check in with them. You can ask them how their day was, what’s new for them, or just let them know that you’re thinking of them.
Caregivers care, we can too.
