National Family Caregivers Month

National Family Caregivers Month – celebrated each November — is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. Celebrating Family Caregivers during NFC month enables all of us to:

  • Raise awareness of family caregiver issue
  • Celebrate the efforts of family caregivers
  • Educate family caregivers about self-identification
  • Increase support for family caregivers

Caregiver Action Network is the organization that chooses the theme for National Family Caregivers Month annually and spearheads celebration of NFC Month nationally.  Caregiver Action Network (the National Family Caregivers Association) began promoting national recognition of family caregivers in 1994. President Clinton signed the first NFC Month Presidential Proclamation in 1997 and every president since has followed suit by issuing an annual proclamation recognizing and honoring family caregivers each November.
