National Caregiver Day takes place on the third Friday of February, which is the 21st this year. Caregivers who provide valuable services to our elderly loved ones deserve this show of recognition for the work they perform. Good caregivers exhibit a level of compassion, empathy, organization and patience that goes above and beyond.
If you are considering hiring a caregiver, you are likely interested in finding a professional, qualified individual to assist with household duties, transportation, meal prep, medication, etc. The vast majority of caregivers are hard-working and professional individuals. Unfortunately, as a personal injury law firm, we have seen first-hand how destructive a negligent or abusive caregiver can be on an elderly person’s life. We believe it is so important to take time to find a caregiver who will provide the quality of service your loved one deserves. If you have any questions about elder abuse claims in South Carolina, please call Whetstone Perkins & Fulda for a complimentary consultation.
