Family Caregiver Month in Howard County, MD

BrightStar Care is pleased to recognize November as National Family Caregivers Month.

It is time to celebrate caregivers' contributions to their critical role in patient care in Howard County.

There are over 53 million Americans who are unpaid caregivers to family, friends, and neighbors. Caregiving can often have a significant impact on the life of the caregiver. It can make maintaining physical and mental health more difficult and strain work, family, and social activity.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, feelings of stress, worry, and isolation may have some caregivers in need of a break. If you need help making a loved one's doctor appointment, or there may be prescriptions to give, respite care can support a family caregiver in difficult times, and when family or work circumstances require additional support. 

Family caregivers may experience stress and challenges that can significantly impact a family caregiver's mental health and lead to caregiver depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, alcohol and drug addiction, and anxiety. Caregivers need to take care of their psychological and physical health. Supporting caregivers with information and resources can help them maintain a healthy life balance and better serve loved ones with medical and personal care needs.
