National Caregivers Day

Celebrating National Caregivers Day

National Caregivers Day is Friday, February 18.

Although we regularly recognize our FirstLight caregivers, we make a special point of doing so on this special day.

Dedicated home care, home health and hospice professionals selflessly care for others each and every day. They go above and beyond to help families and their loved ones live better lives by providing vital companion care and personal care services. The support they provide enables families to focus on their loved ones and it provides peace of mind.

Caregivers will continue to make a big difference in the lives of others. There are simple ways we can honor them.

  • Say “thank you” to a caregiver you know.
  • Show your appreciation with a small gift or a note of gratitude.
  • Simply share words of encouragement and support for all they do.

Author Leo Buscaglia said:

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

And isn’t that just what caregivers do?
