Care Giver Appreciation Day

Date When Celebrated : November 13 and/or March 3

This is a very important day of recognition for the tens of millions of Americans, who selflessly give their time to care for those who are ill, disabled, or elderly.

Many individuals and organizations have declared a care giver recognition day on many different dates. The most common of them are November 13, and March 3. We give the nod to November 13, as November is National Caregiver Appreciation Month.

This day of recognition is for both paid and unpaid care givers. We believe unpaid care givers, deserve even more special recognition. They silently go about the task of supporting someone in need, most often a family member. They give their time freely, and often spend  their own money in doing so. It can be a thankless task..... without even a thanks from the person being cared for or other relatives who find countless reasons not to help.

Some interesting statistics:

  • 29% of the U.S. population, some 65 million Americans are care givers in some way.

  • According to the U.S. Department of Labor, over 40 million Americans, age 15 or older, provide unpaid care to the elderly alone. 

How to Celebrate Caregiver Appreciation Day:

Most care givers, especially unpaid care givers, do not seek or expect any form of recognition. They do what they do,  simply because it needs to be done, and it is the right thing to do.

  • Give a simple thank you to everyone you know who is a caregiver in any capacity.
  • Send a thank you card by mail or email.
  • Give them a day off. Take over the role of caring.
  • If you are an organization, make up recognition certificates to care givers. 

Origin and Date of Caregivers Appreciation Day:

There are many, many individuals and groups who have declared a Caregivers Appreciation or Recognition Day. But, no one individual or entity appears consistently in our research. The roots of these days go back at least to the early 2000's.

With a variety of people and entities declaring a Caregiver Appreciation Day, it should come as no surprise that there are many, many dates.

There are some references to this as a "National" day. We found no presidential proclamation or congressional act declaring it as a national day. However, we certainly feel caregivers are deserving of this recognition.
