Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.
—Michael J. Fox, actor
It is an honor to care for members of our community. Not a single day goes where I don't think about that. I've seen how life can become complicated for members of our community and their family members. It brings me great joy to know that our compassionate team is making a difference.
It's with the members of our community and their caregivers in mind that I’d like to share some quotations about caregiving that are meaningful to me and those I work with at Home Helpers of Bradenton. We believe staying positive is crucial in family caregiving situations. I hope these words bring comfort to those who need it.
(Please share these caregiver quotes with friends or loved ones who need some extra positivity in their lives!)
