20 Inspirational Caregiver Quotes

By Emma Dickison

It is an honor to care for aging parents. In the summers and on holidays my family would drive to Kentucky from our home in Florida to help care for my Nan. Then, when I was a senior in college, my mother suffered her third stroke, and six months later my dad was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.

—Michael J. Fox, actor

I’m proud of being there for my parents in those years, but it was a very trying time. Life became complicated for my family much faster than anyone could have anticipated. It was frustrating to witness my loved ones’ health get worse, and frightening to be thrust into a caregiver role at a young age.

It’s with that in mind that I’d like to share some quotations about caregiving that are meaningful to me and those I work with at Caring HeartsWe believe staying positive is crucial in family caregiving situations. I hope these words bring comfort to those who need it.

(Please share these caregiver quotes with friends or loved ones who need some extra positivity in their lives!)
