National Family Caregivers Month, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Our country is blessed to have millions of 
                compassionate citizens who bring love and support to 
                family members and friends who are chronically ill, 
                elderly, or disabled. During National Family Caregivers 
                Month, we recognize these kind individuals who give of 
                their hearts, resources, and energy to assist loved 
                ones in need.

                Family caregivers exemplify the true spirit of 
                compassion by providing support to their loved ones and 
                assisting with their everyday activities and special 
                needs. These selfless people must often make great 
                personal sacrifices to maintain the care and support 
                their family and friends require. Their assistance 
                provides those who may be ill, aging, or disabled an 
                opportunity to stay in familiar surroundings and remain 
                a part of their community.

                My Administration is committed to supporting family 
                caregivers and their vital role in our Nation's 
                communities. The National Family Caregiver Support 
                Program continues to provide information, counseling, 
                and services and encourages cooperation among agencies 
                and other providers that work with caregivers. These 
                efforts assist caregivers and help ensure that all 
                Americans receive the care they need.

                As we observe National Family Caregivers Month, we 
                honor family caregivers who take time out of their 
                lives to improve the lives of family and friends. Their 
                efforts demonstrate the best of the American spirit.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim November 2006 as National 
                Family Caregivers Month. I encourage all Americans to 
                honor the selfless service of caregivers who support 
                their loved ones in need.
