Many times caregivers feel isolated and overwhelmed, and end up neglecting their own health and needs. That’s why The Monday Campaigns has created Caregivers’ Monday, an initiative that will find and assemble the latest tips, news and key resources to help caregivers take good care of themselves, manage stress and find support. It is our hope that Caregivers’ Monday will remind these hardworking individuals that, at least on Mondays, they should take some time out for themselves.
