Dieng: In gratitude of caregivers

"As we approach Thanksgiving and the holiday season, so many of us turn our minds and hearts towards giving to others. This November, I am reflecting on the amazing generosity of spirit I see among Vermonters of all walks of life caring for elders and people with disabilities every day. November is National Family Caregivers Month, an opportunity to honor family caregivers as the backbone of our home and community-based support system for Vermonters who are aging or living with a disability. More than 65 million Americans, including 64,000 Vermonters, provide care for a loved one who has a disability, is chronically ill, or is aging and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care. This act of caring is an amazing gift to our Vermont communities".
