It is appropriate that the month chosen for National Family #Caregivers Month is also the one in which we celebrate #Thanksgiving. Whether you are on the giving or receiving end of caregiving, it's time to make a list of our many blessings and express heartfelt thanks!

**National Family Caregivers Month/ Thanksgiving Tip** - If a care recipient is no longer able to express the appreciation their caregiver deserves, other family members or friends should step up and assume this charge. “I know if Uncle Joe could still speak, he would tell everyone that you take such good care of him.”
