National Family Caregiver’s Month
Governor Evers has proclaimed November Family Caregiver Month in recognition of the contributions of family caregivers.
On behalf of Lakeland Care, we want to recognize and thank family caregivers who ensure people with disabilities can live safely and productively in their homes and communities during November Family Caregiver Month. About 80% of all care in the state (whether paid or natural support) is provided by family caregivers, according to the Wisconsin Family and Caregiver Support Alliance. Here at Lakeland Care, 23% of Lakeland Care’s members who reside in their own home utilize SDS and 58% of these members employee family caregivers to provide them their services and supports.
