This Heartwarming Video Gives Special Thanks To Millions Of Forgotten Caregivers
It usually starts relatively small. Maybe Dad needs a little help at home because getting around is becoming difficult. Other times, it arrives like thunder, with a catastrophic injury or a shocking medical diagnosis rendering a loved one completely dependent on outside help. No matter how an illness or disability arrives, the person who steps up to assist their stricken family member earns a title. That person becomes a caregiver.
In the United States, 40 million people provide unpaid care to elderly, ill, and disabled people. Most of these caregivers don’t even distinguish themselves as such. To them, helping family members is simply what you do when they need you. This video is just a little reminder of how dedicated they really are.
Caregivers do so much and ask for nothing in return. Being there for a loved one can be a struggle, but at the same time, it’s so rewarding.
