Friday Nov 01
Time to celebrate our family caregivers! Home Office

November is National Family Caregivers Month! This is a time to celebrate the contributions of those volunteer friends and family members who support a loved one with their health or managing a disability. We’re thankful for the contributions of the more than 44 million Americans who care for a family member, friend, or neighbor. Join us as we celebrate the contribution of caregivers and find better ways to support them as they care.

The theme for 2019 is #BeCareCurious. Family caregivers want their loved ones to have the best care possible – at the doctor’s office, at the hospital, and at home. We encourage family caregivers across the country to ask questions, explore options, and share in the care decisions that affect the health and well-being of their loved ones.

BeCareCurious about:
Your loved one’s goals: You spend the most time with your loved one and know them better anyone else does. Talk to them about what their goals are for treatment and their care in general.

Treatment options: Is your loved one responding well to treatment? If not, ask your doctor if there are other options.

Research: Talk to friends, family, and doctors to ask as many questions as possible to learn about your loved one’s condition.

The care plan: A lot of care happens at home and you need to be prepared to provide that assistance.

Coverage: Don’t be shy about asking questions about insurance coverage.
So this November, during National Family Caregivers Month, take time to #BeCareCurious about your loved one’s care!
