I want to take this time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the world; Thank you for your time, dedication, sacrifices, and love. ⌚🎁👍 I have come to realize many caregivers, have issues identifying whether they are a caregiver or not. So, what is family and what is a caregiver? The following definitions come from Merriam-Webster: Family - a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation; a group of individuals living under one roof and usually under one head; a group of persons of common ancestry – this to me indicates that family includes paid, unpaid, blood related, and non-blood related persons – for myself as a RN and Care Manager, I see family as whoever the patient says his or her family is.
