Throughout National Family Caregivers Month, we pause to recognize the men and women who tirelessly work to improve the quality of life for Americans in need of care. Caregivers help their family members live fulfilling lives by providing vital assistance in domestic, financial, and medical affairs. The responsibility of serving and supporting another person can be challenging, and the strength and compassion exhibited by caregivers is one of the greatest manifestations of genuine love we witness in this world. Their unrelenting support enables family members to live with dignity. As we honor the innumerable sacrifices made in homes across the country, we affirm our resolve to ensure all caregivers are given the resources and respect they deserve. This support requires a commitment from community stakeholders and Federal, State, and local governments to equip caregivers with training and tools to use to safeguard their family’s health and security. This past summer, the Administration for Community Living held the inaugural meetings of the Family Caregiving Advisory Council and the Advisory Council to Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren. The strategies, informational resources, and technical assistance being developed by these councils will strengthen our Nation’s support for family caregivers and their work enhancing the lives of millions of Americans. This November, we recognize and honor the commitment of those who exemplify the essential American tenets of devotion to family and compassion toward those who matter most in our lives. Through caregivers’ generosity, our vulnerable communities are able to fully experience the many blessings of our great Nation. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with PRESDOC5 NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J.

                Proclamation 9960 of October 31, 2019

                
National Family Caregivers Month, 2019

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Selfless Americans across our country consistently 
                dedicate themselves and their resources to providing 
                ailing and aging loved ones with the care and support 
                they need to live in their own homes and communities. 
                Throughout National Family Caregivers Month, we pause 
                to recognize the men and women who tirelessly work to 
                improve the quality of life for Americans in need of 
                care.

                Caregivers help their family members live fulfilling 
                lives by providing vital assistance in domestic, 
                financial, and medical affairs. The responsibility of 
                serving and supporting another person can be 
                challenging, and the strength and compassion exhibited 
                by caregivers is one of the greatest manifestations of 
                genuine love we witness in this world. Their 
                unrelenting support enables family members to live with 
                dignity.

                As we honor the innumerable sacrifices made in homes 
                across the country, we affirm our resolve to ensure all 
                caregivers are given the resources and respect they 
                deserve. This support requires a commitment from 
                community stakeholders and Federal, State, and local 
                governments to equip caregivers with training and tools 
                to use to safeguard their family's health and security. 
                This past summer, the Administration for Community 
                Living held the inaugural meetings of the Family 
                Caregiving Advisory Council and the Advisory Council to 
                Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren. The 
                strategies, informational resources, and technical 
                assistance being developed by these councils will 
                strengthen our Nation's support for family caregivers 
                and their work enhancing the lives of millions of 
                Americans.

                This November, we recognize and honor the commitment of 
                those who exemplify the essential American tenets of 
                devotion to family and compassion toward those who 
                matter most in our lives. Through caregivers' 
                generosity, our vulnerable communities are able to 
                fully experience the many blessings of our great 
                Nation.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States do hereby proclaim November 2019 as 
                National Family Caregivers Month. I encourage all 
                Americans to reach out to those who provide care for 
                their family members, friends, and neighbors in need, 
                to honor and thank them.
