This Labor Day weekend, we’re making a special tribute to the 14.3 million health care workers and 65 million caregivers. Thank you for all that you do!

One of the most invaluable components of homecare is the family caregiver. These selfless individuals provide unpaid care for a loved one, assisting with their medical needs and/or activities of daily living. They lovingly donate their time, energy, and resources to care for one in need–and their free care has an economic value of $450 BILLION each year!

It is imperative that our country harness this free service and support the caregivers who are making personal sacrifices to care for one in need. We need greater awareness, resources, support, and communication for caregivers across the country. We need a system that empowers them to keep doing what they’re doing. These are the true champions for homecare. The true advocates for our nation’s elderly and disabled. They are the ones who walk the walk each day, and they need our support.
