Denise_TDMWe're honoring family caregivers throughout November, which is National Family Caregivers Month.

Every day, we do our best to shine a light on the issues we face when we care for a family member or friend. We want the health care system, our families, our houses of worship, our employers to better understand our days so they can put programs and services in place to help.

The best way to show what caregiving is like is to put a face on our issues. So, on Monday, November 23, let's share selfies of ourselves and our carees, or of ourselves and our caregiving friends, or of ourselves and our families. Let's show the world what caregiving looks like. (I've included a selfie of myself and @thedogmama, who cared for her mom.)

So, take a selfie and post it on your social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) on Monday, November 23. Use the hashtag #caringselfie. Be sure to include some of your caregiving story and explain that you're sharing a selfie to put a face on caregiving.
