#CaregiversConnect 2023 NFC Month Campaign

CaregiversConnect 2023 NFC Month CampaignFor National Family Caregivers Month 2023, the #CaregiversConnect campaign highlights the importance of connections. Connections help get information about your loved one’s disease or condition, and share experiences. They also provide support or form a closer bond with your loved one.

#CaregiversConnect when you’re in the waiting room of your loved one’s oncologist’s office and start comparing experiences. #CaregiversConnect with the caregiver sitting next to you. #CaregiversConnect at the support group for Alzheimer’s caregivers at the community center.

#CaregiversConnect to information when you visit the website that your wife’s cardiologist recommended. And #CaregiversConnect when you call your grandpa who lives several states away and is living with Parkinson’s.

#CaregiversConnect raises awareness of your role as a family caregiver. You might find out your co-worker is caring for a child with the same rare disease as your sister. The woman sitting next to you at church might also be caring for aging parents.

When #CaregiversConnect, whether for support, information, or just to talk to someone who understands, it helps you feel less isolated. You are not alone.
