Today we celebrate the caregivers!
According to Statistics Canada 2013, 8.1 million Canadians are carers. That means that 1 in 4 Canadians are a caregiver/family caregiver. Of those carers, 6.1 million are balancing work with their caregiving responsibilities.
Today we recognize the hard work and dedication of caregivers and family caregivers, who take on the unpaid role of caring for someone with cognitive or physical complications. Whether you are caring for your family member or friend, we want to thank you for the hard work you do.
Being a carer is not an easy role; the responsibilities can be immense but incredibly rewarding. Take a moment to thank a carer today!
I would like you to know how pleased we were with J. during the months she provided overnight care for my father. J. was always very pleasant and patient and did many extras to help dad. She went beyond her required responsibilities and we are grateful for her kindness.
