This November, Falk, Barrot and Associates, LLP invites you to recognize National Family Caregivers Month (NFCM). A caregiver is anyone who cares for someone who can no longer care for themselves. This includes, but is not limited to, the elderly, chronically ill, and physically and mentally challenged. Caregiving is a difficult job. It can be stressful and saddening to care for your loved one and watch their condition worsen. Many caregivers who are caring for a family member do this work on top of other responsibilities. They may not have formal experience or training and find it intimidating and overwhelming.
National Family Caregivers Month (NFCM) acknowledges the actions of these hard-working individuals across the country and offers an opportunity to educate people on caregiving and how best to support the caregivers in their life. Remember, anyone at any time may suffer from an illness or accident that changes their lives, so even if you are not a caregiver or do not need one yet, it is important to learn about caregiving so you can best prepare for life’s changes.
If you want to learn more about caregiving, Falk, Barrot and Associates, LLP recommends purchasing a copy of “The Ultimate Caregiver Guide: How to Provide the Best Possible Care for Loved Ones and Yourself in California,” written and published by Mary S. Falk and Kimberly N. Barrot. This book provides comprehensive information, worksheets, and checklists that make caregiving more manageable. In honor of National Family Caregivers Month (NFCM), we are offering this book at a discount for $10.00 per book.
