November is a time to celebrate the many caregivers providing care for older adults and individuals with disabilities in the community. It is estimated that around 44 million Americans provide 37 billion hours of unpaid care for adult family members and friends. Let's all take the time this month to thank a caregiver we know. If you are a caregiver take time this month to reward yourself for all of your hard work!
