November is National Family Caregiver Month, when we recognize parents and caregivers for the love, support and care they tirelessly and selflessly provide their children and loved ones every day.
Many parents and caregivers have found they can better help support their children if they give themselves permission to take care of themselves, too. Suggestions on how to take care of yourself when your child is a patient at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia can be found in our resource for caregivers of children with a serious medical condition Caring For You.
