Honor contributions of caregivers this month

As you may know, November is National Hospice Month and National Family Caregivers Month. I believe this to be an excellent opportunity to recognize how vital caregivers are to our community.

Professional caregivers make meaningful and humanitarian contributions to Los Angeles and to communities all over the world.

This particular profession’s approach to care utilizes strategies to provide comfort and reassurance to those who are ill, as well as their families.

As fellow caregivers in our community, we honor caregivers for the invaluable service they provide to those seeking physical, emotional and spiritual support. The nation’s caregivers were justly recognized in the 2003 proclamation by President George W. Bush, who said: “Every stage of human life deserves to be treated with respect and care. Their contributions make our Nation a better place.”
