November is a special month to all of us at Advanced Home Care Services because we enjoy celebrating Thanksgiving and National Family Caregivers Month. This month represents family, friends, and gratitude. Family caregivers feel an enormous sense of love, pride, and satisfaction from assisting their loved ones. While needs can vary greatly, seniors may require help with morning wake-up or evening tuck-in routines, diet, housekeeping, walking, medication reminders, and heavy chores. For grown children, coping with the stress of parent caregiving can be rather overwhelming. Family caregivers need to take breaks in order to decompress, recreate, and care for themselves. They play a vital role in our communities, families, and social spheres. Caregiving touches every life in one way or another. Universality is, perhaps, its most noteworthy feature.
There are only four kinds of people in the world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.
~ Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter
Giving Caregivers Thanks at Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving provides the perfect opportunity to show gratitude for our blessings. At Thanksgiving dinner, many families follow the tradition of saying what they are grateful for. Go ahead and take that time to recognize the caregivers in your family. That special moment will not only be greatly appreciated but also fondly remembered for years to come.
Another way of giving caregivers thanks is through a respite. Our qualified, compassionate, and skilled Massachusetts senior care staff will take exceptional care of Mom and Dad for you. We offer Home Health Aide classes, and, as a result, we can guarantee the highest possible industry standards. Our staff works hard to provide a comprehensive line of home care services for seniors.

Most importantly, Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Caregiving from our family to yours!
