While 2020 has been marred by the imprint COVID-19 has left in its wake, it has also been a year of raising up those on the front lines fighting this devastating pandemic. We’re thanking first responders and medical professionals in a way we never have before, recognizing the sacrifices they all make daily to help ensure we all stay healthy and well. Essential Workers’ praises are rightly being sung, but there’s one group of people who deserve heroic accolades – especially this year – for whom the silence and isolation have been deafening and discouraging: the Caregiver.
November is National Family Caregiver Awareness Month and WEGO Health wants to support this cause and shine the spotlight on all of the incredible people who freely and selflessly give all of themselves to care for their loved ones with chronic illnesses or disabilities. They are superheroes hiding in plain sight, giving 110% of what most of us could fathom each and every day.
