This November, in celebration of National Family Caregivers Month (NFCM), we honor caregivers, whose tireless work has made Seniors Helping Seniors® a leader in-home care. Caregivers are at the core of what we do, and their work is essential to the health and happiness of so many people around the world.
Celebrated nationally every November, National Family Caregivers Month was established by the nonprofit Caregiver Action Network (CAN), which provides free education, peer support, and resources to family caregivers.
Family members are the primary caregivers for most older adults and people with disabilities in the U.S. As our Seniors Helping Seniors® franchise has expanded into markets across the country, the brand has provided opportunities for those caregivers to turn their hard work and passion into lucrative career opportunities while also offering a source of relief to family caregivers experiencing burnout.
Half of all caregivers in the U.S. are over the age of fifty and are themselves vulnerable to declining health, which is why Seniors Helping Seniors® services, which prioritizes hiring seniors as caregivers, provides a wealth of support to ensure the mental, physical, and emotional health of its caregivers.
Our senior caregivers brighten the lives of seniors by providing compassionate care with a helping hand and supporting seniors to continue to live independent lives by taking care of day-to-day tasks that become more challenging with age. We prioritize caring for our caregivers just like our senior receivers.
We have put a lot of work into ensuring that Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care is not only the best option for our receivers but also caregivers across the country. We are extremely proud of this, but it is not something we take for granted. We will continue to make sure anyone who has the passion and skills to be a great caregiver will find a great opportunity to grow and make an impact with Seniors Helping Seniors® services. Our caregivers truly have … a way to give and receive®.
