National Family Caregivers Month

November is National Family Caregivers Month. It’s a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. This year’s theme is “Caregiving Around the Clock.” We know families who care for those on the spectrum face unique challenges and this month we take time to celebrate you and provide you with resources. We encourage you to visit the National PACE Association and their Caregiver Action Network for additional resources, http://bit.ly/2CHGV0L
