Caregivers are dedicated men and women who enable elderly and disabled people to live at home rather than being required to live at a care facility.
There are currently more than 4.5 million caregivers working in homes, residential care homes, nursing homes and hospitals, and the need for more caregivers is growing.
This is an essential job that has been especially helpful through the course of the ongoing pandemic. Many of these caregivers are unpaid, helping family and friends after the closure of facilities due to COVID-19.
Caregivers are essential to our health care system and deserve all of our thanks.
