KCK Youth Caregivers Awareness Drive | February 14 - March 7, 2021
Did You Know?
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are approximately 1.3 to 1.4 million youth caregivers who are between the ages of 8 to 18, nationwide. These are youth who are serving as caregivers to sick or disabled parents, siblings, aging relatives, or loved ones.
Do You Know A Youth Caregiver? Help Us To Recognize and Celebrate Them.
I (Kaylin) live with my mom, who is the primary caregiver for my 78-year-old grandmother, and my 97-year-old great-grandmother, both of whom have Alzheimer's dementia. I often help my mom to care for them and it's not always an easy task. But, it's one that I do willingly and with great joy. Caregivers are special, especially Youth Caregivers and we want to recognize and celebrate them with the Kaylin's Caring Konnection Youth Caregiver Award.
The purpose of this award is to recognize the unselfish, outstanding, loving CARE these youth provide to their family members. We want them to know that we see them and while they care for others, we care for them.
