The Institute for Professional Care Education (IPCed) announced plans to celebrate November 2016 as National Family Caregiver Month. Marked by President Barack Obama’s proclamation, National Family Caregiver Month reaffirms “support for those who give of themselves to be there for their family, friends, and neighbors in challenging times.” It is also a time to honor family caregivers by providing them with the resources they need to care for loved ones, friends and neighbors.
“Those who take care of their loved ones are key to our continuum of care,” says Sharon Brothers, President and Founder of IPCed. “As a family caregiver myself, I understand the stress and exhaustion that many people take on willingly to care for their loved ones. While personally committed, they are often underappreciated and ill-equipped with a serious lack of effective care training. Through our Family Learning Center, we want to support family caregivers with the best possible toolset to take care of their loved ones.”
Throughout November 2016, IPCed will be releasing special promotional initiatives that specifically aid family caregivers in their education and training needs.
- A panel discussion with family caregivers on Wednesday November 30, 2016, where Sharon Brothers interviews and discusses the experiences of the family caregiver.
- A free set of Family Education Guides on top healthcare topics for care providers to offer to families in their community.
- A series of blog entries specifically about family caregiving and the importance it plays in the US healthcare continuum.
