It’s National Caregiver’s Month: Don’t Forget Male Caregivers
Posted Nov 15 2010 12:00am
Dear Readers: This is a busy month for celebrating caregivers. It’s National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, National Hospice/Palliative Care Month and National Caregiver’s Month. Many readers could be a part of all three of these awareness campaigns, if you had time. It’s likely that many of you saw the ABC News special titled the “Shriver Report 2010,” which recently aired over an entire week. If you missed this report, go to the ABC News Web site and type in “Shriver Report.” The full report is meant to highlight the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease, ongoing research, the need for funding, and the toll Alzheimer’s care takes on caregivers.
