National Caregivers Day happens annually on the first Tuesday in April, which happens to be today — April 4th and Caregiver Solutions Magazine would like to give a big thank you to caregivers everywhere!
This day is dedicated to acknowledging the invaluable contributions that caregivers make to support the health and well-being of Canadians.
Historically, this day was unanimously adopted by the Members of Parliament to recognize the importance of the “invisible” unpaid work. Today is a day to celebrate caregivers’ selfless commitment and dedication to their labour, while also reminding governments and policymakers to provide adequate resources and support to caregivers nationwide.
In the scope of the COVID-19 pandemic over the last three years, the hard work and dedication of caregivers have helped so many fight isolation, live independently in their homes for longer, and remain connected to their friends and families.
On National Caregivers Day, we would like to give thanks and recognition to the millions of caregivers who make a difference in the lives of so many people, helping Canadians to continue to live and thrive in their communities.
Thank you to caregivers everywhere!
