The Healey-Driscoll Administration has proclaimed November 2023 as Family Caregivers Month in the Commonwealth, which aligns with the annual tradition across the country of recognizing and honoring family caregivers.
In celebration of National Family Caregiver Month, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs now offers new resources for family caregivers:
- Family Caregiver Support Groups Listing – Searching for a caregiving support group? Explore this new webpage to find a virtual or in-person support group near you that’s run by Family Caregiver Support Program staff.
- Caring for the Caregiver Webinar Series Webpage – Looking for information about caregiving? The Executive Office of Elder Affairs hosts a webinar series for family caregivers. Visit this new landing page to learn about the series, find past recordings, and upcoming webinars.
To help promote the awareness month, the National Council on Aging has a wealth of social media tools that organizations and communities can post.
Other resources and tools for caregivers are always available (during National Family Caregiver Month and beyond) on the Caregiver Action Network website here.
