As millions of daughters, sons, parents, spouses, partners, friends and relatives become caregivers for aging and disabled relatives, it’s important to recognize the critical role that a responsible safety net plays in keeping individuals and families whole. President Obama released an official proclaimation, noting:

Across America, daughters and sons balance the work of caring for aging parents with the demands of their careers and raising their own children. Spouses and partners become caregivers to the ones they love even as they navigate their own health challenges. Mothers and fathers resume care for children returning home as wounded warriors. Friends and relatives form networks to support loved ones with disabilities. All of them give selflessly to bring comfort, social engagement, and stability to those they love.

During National Family Caregivers Month, recognize this awesome responsibility, and be grateful for the social insurance programs that are there in place to keep communities and families strong.
