42 million caregivers all deserve big thanks

There are over 42 million family caregivers in the United States. Every single one deserves thanks for taking on the challenge of caring for an older adult – though we know you’re not doing it for the accolades.

Inspiration for caregivers

When you’re a caregiver, it can feel like nobody notices how much you’re doing for others. One look at this wall and you’ll know that’s not true. Thousands of people are publicly thanking the caregivers in their lives. If you need a morale boost, get inspired and lifted up by reading the heartfelt messages on the Wall of Thanks.
