105 Random Acts of Kindness- Day 5

Some ideas to help you come up with a kind act today!

Today is:

National Care Giver Day

Chocolate Mint Day

Started by the Providers Association for Home Health and Hospice Agencies in 2015 and first observed in 2016, National Caregivers Day celebrates and honors caregivers. Appreciation is shown to caregiving professionals as well as to family (or friend) caregivers. Caregiving work can be fulfilling, but also may be physically and mentally draining, so it is quite appropriate that we pause today to honor those who undertake the work.

Caregivers provide personal care and medical support for those who can’t fully care for themselves and help them lead better and more fulfilling lives. They may care for people in hospice, for people with disabilities or injuries, or for elderly people who need long-term care. Hospitals, other health facilities, and homes may all be the workspaces of caregivers.

The range of duties caregivers carry out is rather broad. They may help with daily tasks like bathing, eating, medicine, housework, and cooking; run errands and provide transportation; offer general emotional support; organize daily activities and arrange medical care; and even make health and financial decisions. Much of the care they provide is unpaid, particularly if they are caring for a family member. Today we honor professional and family caregivers, both the paid and unpaid, for their dedication to those in need.

An idea for today:

Give a Social Media Shout Out to a Caregiver. A caregiver can be someone who took care of you, someone who cares for others etc….
