White Plains, NY (PRWEB) October 30, 2011
Considering how taxing caregivers’ jobs are, LifeFone believes each one deserves recognition for their extraordinary, complex and challenging role. Thankfully November is National Family Caregiver Month (NFC Month), a time for family, friends and care recipients to reflect on the caregivers in their lives who provide care for the sick, elderly and disabled members of American society.
As part of the celebration of these outstanding individuals, LifeFone will be providing resources, information and tools to help make caregiver’s lives a bit easier as well as drawing for a recipient of a medical alert system. Caregivers often devote countless hours and resources to their caregiving role, putting their loved ones before themselves and sacrificing their own time in order to provide the best possible care. Caregiving is a full time job requiring patience, love, passion, dependability and heart. By rewarding one outstanding caregiver with a medical alert system, he or she may gain some much needed respite care. During November, LifeFone will feature topics geared toward caregivers on Facebook, Twitter and Caregiver Connections.
By simply nominating a special caregiver, a complimentary copy of Caring for Your Parents: The Complete Family Guide will be sent to caregivers while supplies last. This insightful book provides useful considerations many people overlook in the process of providing care for the elderly. Considering the challenge caregivers face, this book can be a useful tool as they journey down the path of caring for a family member or elderly individual.
LifeFone honors these dedicated folks! Their tireless efforts, long hours, selfless acts of love and dedication to family is remarkable and often goes unnoticed. At the commencement of National Caregiver Month, one nominee will be awarded a medical alert system along with a full year of service from LifeFone. Medical Alerts make life easier for the care recipient knowing that emergency care is available at the push of the medical alarm button. It also offers the opportunity for caregivers to take some much needed time for themselves knowing that care is available when they are out.
Please take the month of November to show your respect and gratitude to those caregivers whose efforts enable their care recipients to live their lives in good health, with renewed dignity. Nominate your caregiver at Lifefone as a small token of your appreciation of their efforts.
