National Family Caregivers Month Webinar, Nov 22

On Nov. 22, FEMA will host a webinar at 2 p.m. ET in recognition of National Caregivers Month. Led by FEMA’s Office of Disability Integration and Coordination, the webinar will explain how the agency helps to prepare caregivers for emergencies and disasters.

National Caregivers’ Month is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. It offers an opportunity to raise awareness of caregiving issues, educate communities and increase support for caregivers.

Families are the primary source of support for older adults and people with disabilities in the U.S. Many family caregivers both work and provide care, leading to experiencing conflicts between competing responsibilities. Research indicates caregiving takes a significant emotional, physical and financial toll. The Administration for Community Living and FEMA are proud observers of National Caregivers Month and work year-round through programs and councils to support and empower family caregivers.
