“Exceeding The Assignment In 2024”



Caregivers are those unsung heroes who dedicate their time to caring for and supporting others. Their service is often selfless and compassionate, and it is essential to acknowledge their efforts. Caregiving can be a thankless job, and often, these caregivers rarely receive monetary pay for their time and effort. It can also be emotionally and physically exhausting. However, they keep going despite the challenges, driven by their love and devotion. 

There are several types of caregivers: family caregivers, professional caregivers, volunteer caregivers, and informal caregivers. 

Mothers Shut In believes caregivers are an essential component of our society, and their selfless service deserves recognition and appreciation. It is not just a job – it's a way of life that requires dedication, patience, and love.

National Family Caregivers Month
November 1-31, 2024
2024 Theme: “Caregiving Around the Clock.”

Every November, we celebrate National Family Caregivers Month—a time dedicated to recognizing family caregivers' unwavering dedication and invaluable contributions nationwide. The celebration serves not just as a heartfelt tribute but also as a crucial awareness-raising initiative about the issues family caregivers face daily.

As members of the broader community or as individuals who have felt the loving touch of a caregiver's hands, it is our collective responsibility to lift these incredible individuals up. We invite you to Join us in honoring caregivers this November. Take a moment to acknowledge the tireless work that caregivers do, nominate an outstanding caregiver in your community who's in this role, and let them know their efforts don’t go unnoticed.

Together, let's ensure our nation's family caregivers feel valued, supported, and recognized—not just this November but every day of the year.
