Caregiver Action Network Leads National Family Caregiver’s Month
National Family Caregivers Month – celebrated each November -- is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country.
Celebrating Family Caregivers during National Family Caregivers Month enables all of us to:
- Raise awareness of family caregiver issues
- Celebrate the efforts of family caregivers
- Educate family caregivers about self-identification
- Increase support for family caregivers
Caregiver Action Network is the organization that chooses how to celebrate National Family Caregivers Month annually and spearheads the celebration of NFC Month nationally. Each year, Caregiver Action Network makes materials available for general use, including the theme, a social media kit, etc. and coordinates with the Administration for Community Living and organizations across the field.
Caregiver Action Network (the National Family Caregivers Association) began promoting national recognition of family caregivers in 1994. President Clinton signed the first NFC Month Presidential Proclamation in 1997 and every president since has followed suit by issuing an annual proclamation recognizing and honoring family caregivers each November.
