 November is National Family
Caregivers Month

“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

According to the Caregiver Action Network, the organization that spearheads the national celebration of National Family Caregivers Month each November, this is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country.

Celebrating Family Caregivers during NFC month enables all of us to:
      -  Raise awareness of family caregiver issues;
      -  Celebrate the efforts of family caregivers;
      -  Educate family caregivers; and
      -  Increase support for family caregivers.

At the Nawrocki Center for Elder Law, we recognize that while caring for a loved one can be extremely gratifying, it can also cause great stress and worry.  Our experienced and compassionate attorneys and staff know that having the right legal documents in place can provide peace of mind, and can help you identify the steps necessary to put plans in place for your loved one’s present and future needs.  If you are providing care for a family member and would like information on how our firm can help you or to your loved one, give us a call at 810 229-0220.
