Did you know that November is National Family Caregivers Month? AARP Hawaii definitely knows and puts a tremendous amount of effort into a series of activities throughout the entire month. The AARP champion behind the scenes is Jackie Boland. A caregiver told her that AARP “saved my life!!”. In this short video Jackie tells that story, talks about “the Art of Caregiving”, “Sky Blossom” and Amy Goyer:

Juggling Life, Work and Caregiving
by Amy Goyer
AARP's gentle guide provides practical resources and tips that are easy to find when you need them, whether you're caregiving day to day, planning for future needs or in the middle of a crisis. And equally important, this book helps you care for the caregiver—you!

Are you a caregiver? If so, how are you related to the person receiving care? How long have you been a caregiver? Caregiving can be anything from just a little bit of time to a full time effort. Put your answer in the comments section.
Sky Blossom was such an eye-opener for me to watch! It’s so well done and there’s even a family from Hawaii in it. It’s so important to portray different aspects of caregiving through different types of media.
Thank you for all you are doing to get this information out to more folks, Warren!
