Let's Take Care of Our Caregivers

Caregivers are our most passionate of patient advocates. We need to advocate for them too.

Join Our Campaign

The Caregivers Count campaign recognizes and honors the diverse experiences of caregivers. Because many people don’t see themselves as “caregivers,” they overlook essential support services that may ease their caregiver experience.  

Many people help sick or debilitated loved ones because they believe that is what is expected of them as a family member or friend. However, assuming the role of  caregiver is so much more than kinship or spending time together; it involves undertaking  a myriad of unplanned or extra actions to support and maintain someone’s  health and quality of life . 

Take Action

Our Caregivers Count campaign takes place every June but helping people identify as caregivers and connecting them to relevant resources is important year-round. Here are actions you can take right now to support caregivers in your community.

  • Be an advocate and download our campaign toolkit. The campaign toolkit explains how you can start help caregivers find the right resources with sample social media posts, a letter-to-the editor template, an email draft and much more.
  • Engage with us. Participate in our week of action – outlined in our campaign toolkit – and sign up for our campaign digest. By sharing our resources, joining our Twitter chat and amplifying the campaign, you can help our nation’s caregivers, one action at a time.
