Happy National Caregivers Day
Friday, February 21st
National Caregivers Day is celebrated each year on the third Friday of February. It’s the perfect opportunity to acknowledge the dedicated and compassionate people who work as Caregivers or have taken on the Caregiver role in their family.
National Caregivers Day is a way for English Rose Suites and b♦home Home Care to celebrate our Caregivers who provide the quality, compassionate person and relationship centered care to our Residents and Clients each and every day.
We asked our leadership team to share their appreciation for our wonderful Caregivers who make the difference in our Residents and Clients daily life.

Do you know a caregiver? There are many ways to celebrate them!
Give flowers or box of chocolate as a simple act of kindness to show appreciation and acknowledge their dedication as a caregiver. Offer a break and give them a chance to relish in personal time or assist in helping tackle some of their own personal chores or duties. Helping them do a small task that minimizes something from their plate will be greatly appreciated. If nothing else, just celebrate them! Give them a handwritten thank you card. Letting them know how grateful you are for their hard work is sure to humble its receiver.
