Giving Thanks for Family Caregivers

Giving Thanks for Family Caregivers

Family caregivers are special people whose contributions often go unrecognized but for whom we are most thankful.

Giving of themselves to make better the lives of loved ones is often not easy, especially when challenged by Alzheimer’s Disease or other life-altering affliction.

We want family caregivers to understand how special they and what they do are so they realize the need to care for their own needs to be able to keep on giving the best of themselves to loved ones.

This poem is something we found on the web, at The Ribbon, and want to share as one small way of saying “thank you.”

We are truly thankful for family caregivers and to Loraine (WilloRain) for these words to express our thanks.

CareGiver

by Loraine (WilloRain)


Two words that come together

When you speak of someone dear.

It is that special person

If you call, they’re always near.

 

You’ll see that in a ‘CareGiver’

Love comes from in their Heart.

With loving hands and guidance

They help each new day start.

 

Caring for the fragile soul,

Giving day to day.

They meet the needs of loved one’s

Spreading love along the way.

 

A gentle touch, a helping hand,

A glow that makes you smile.

Always near to comfort

And go that extra mile

.

They want no fame or glory,

And it puts their mind at ease,

To know they’ve helped a loved one

Deal with Alzheimer’s disease.

 

So show a little kindness

To CareGivers across this land.

You may be the one someday

Who needs a helping hand.

 

With Peace and Understanding,

Throughout the ends of time.

There’s someone who will care for you

And make your Spirit shine…

 

The CareGiver…

  1. Thank you. There are so many things, big and small, that go by without appreciation being shown. We know caregivers aren’t in it for the thanks, but they are more than earned!

  2. This really is a great thing to read and see, the ones that deserve the most appreciation even if they don’t want it. There are people in elderly home care I know that deserve all the appreciation in the world for the work they do and this article says it better than I think I could to the people I know Thank you.

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
