Dear Friend,


Featured this month:

As leaves and temperatures begin to fall, November is a great time for reflection. It is the perfect month to be thankful for and to celebrate our friends, families and those who care for us. November is also National Family Caregivers Month, and while it is the caregivers who are present every step of the way with their loved ones experiencing chronic illness or disability, most go unnoticed in the healthcare system. We at Lotsa Helping Hands, as well as all of you in the Lotsa Community, are in the unique position to make an impact in changing the way our healthcare system responds to family caregivers. We fully support the National Family Caregivers Association as they lead the celebration this year with their theme of Identifying Family Caregivers!

At Lotsa Helping Hands, we have redesigned our web site as a way to honor the more than 65 million caregivers among us. We hope that the changes and new additions to our site will help many family caregivers with the role that they play in their loved ones’ lives. One of our favorite new features is our Resources page. Whether you’re looking for tips on using your Community web site or need additional information about leading caregiver and health organizations, our new Resources page may help you along the way.

As you explore our new site this month, we invite you to share your story. Are you a caregiver for a loved one? Or do you wish to recognize a caregiver who has inspired you? Head over to our Story Project page and tell us your story.

Read on for our monthly column, tips and features.

Many of us at Lotsa Helping Hands are caregivers ourselves, making this month especially meaningful and our work that much more gratifying.

     From our community to yours,

          Hal Chapel, Co-Founder & CEO
