“Family members, friends, and neighbors devote countless hours to providing care to their relatives or loved ones. During National Family Caregivers Month, we recognize and thank the humble heroes who do so much to keep our families and communities strong.”
– President Barack Obama, NFC Month Proclamation 2012
Since 2012, throughout the month of November, we celebrate family caregivers across the nation.
Here in Illinois, thousands of home care workers support their loved ones through the Home Services Program and the Community Care Program, providing love, care, dignity and independence.
We want to take a moment to acknowledge and thank all of our home care members for your selfless dedication as we head into the Thanksgiving holiday.
Caregiving is exhausting and challenging work, especially when we are caring for those in our lives that mean the most to us: our families.
Your work is valuable and you are not alone – our union and the more than 50,000 home care workers united with us stand firmly behind you.
Thank you for all that you do and we hope you and your family have a warm and happy Thanksgiving.
