As I watched the news today, I expanded my concept of what constitutes a caregiver. Usually, I think of it as someone who cares for a loved one. Then there are those who choose to become professional caregivers serving in hospitals, hospice, long term live in facilities and doing in home care. After watching a special report on ABC news today, I personally expanded that definition to include those in the military who dedicate their lives to keeping us safe.
Having the opportunity to stop and reflect on the difference they make in my life was an opportunity to honor and support them. Check out my Your Tango blog post, A Moment of Silence, for more thoughts on these incredible caregivers.
