Thanking a Caregiver with a Random Act of Kindness: VIDEO





















By Cathy Chester—November 24, 2015

All of us know a caregiver. We either are one, have one or know of one. So we know how much work is involved in being a caregiver.

That’s why I was thrilled to learn that November is National Caregiver Month. It’s a month to recognize all that caregivers do and let them know what they mean to us.

There are over 40 million unpaid U.S. caregivers providing care for a family member or friend. They’re not medical professionals but are people unselfishly caring for someone struggling with the normal tasks of daily living.

The role of caregiver can mean so many things. At times it can be rewarding, tiring, confusing, frustrating or satisfying.

Many caregivers are sandwiched in between the needs of their parents and children while continuing to be a part of the work force. This is not easy to do and can create wear and tear on the caregiver, both physically and emotionally.

That’s why AARP created a community for caregivers that’s all their own. It’s a safe place to connect with experts and talk to other caregivers. It’s a place for them to find information and tools to help them take care of themselves.

The Ad Council and AARP seek to create awareness for the Caregiver Assistance campaign. This year they’re kicking off a program designed to encourage all Americans to perform an unexpected ‘Random Act of Kindness’ for a caregiver.

The Random Act of Kindness Campaign will raise much-needed awareness about caregiving and caregivers while also reaching caregivers directly. Wouldn’t it be nice to remove some of the daily stress caregivers face by doing something nice for them? They certainly deserve it!
