2013 Caregivers Appreciation Party

Besides Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Turkey and Thanksgiving Dinner, do you know that November is also proclaimed by our President Barack Obama as National Family Caregiver Month? To echo this special month, our Family Caregiver Support Program organized a wonderful Caregiver Appreciation Party on Nov 26 to recognize and appreciate our invisible heroes who unconditionally devote their love, time and effort to caregiving their loved one in years. There were 55 participants including 35 informal family caregivers and their loved ones who came to join this big day with us. We had games, lucky draw, a forum on the 2014 Affordable Care Act, and a lot of great food! Family Caregiver Support Program felt a great success to see all the big smiles and laughter from people who came to celebrate with us, and would continue serving all new and existing family caregivers!
