From The American Presidency Project, Proclamation 10488—National Family Caregivers Month, 2022:
“During National Family Caregivers Month, we recognize the love and sacrifice of more than 50 million Americans providing crucial care and medical assistance to parents, children, siblings and other loved ones, ensuring their health and dignity.
“Today, far too many Americans find themselves sandwiched between the enormous tasks of supporting aging parents, raising young children and earning a living. Others bear the responsibility of caring for loved ones with a disability or looking after wounded, ill or injured service members and veterans who have sacrificed so much for us all. The truth is, at some point in our lives, each of us will likely need to be a family caregiver—but the burden falls especially hard on those who cannot afford support. Women, people of color and immigrants shoulder a disproportionate share of the obligation, sometimes forced to leave good jobs to instead provide care. Their work is a profound service to their families and to our nation, but they are still too often unseen, undervalued and unpaid.”
