Celebrating Caregivers Who Provide Selfless Care


  • Posted by Katelyn Snider, U.S. Communications and Public Affairscrop_caregiver

    November is National Family Caregiver Month, and is a time to celebrate and honor those who devote their time to providing selfless care for their loved ones. Did you know an estimated 43 million Americans are unpaid caregivers for family members and loved ones?

    Caregivers play a critical role in ensuring the best care for those living with a chronic disease, and it can be a rewarding experience. However, many caregivers also juggle everyday life responsibilities, jobs, and household tasks, so take a minute to thank, encourage, and support these heroes this month.

    At UCB, we believe in not only supporting our patients, but also their family caregivers. One way we support caregivers is through services provided by UCBCares®. UCBCares associates are healthcare professionals (nurses and pharmacists) and experienced customer care specialists, who are specially trained on UCB products and disease states, product safety and quality, and financial assistance. These associates are dedicated to delivering an exceptional caring experience with a solution mindset to support patients, their caregivers, and providers. To connect with UCBCares, call 1-844-599-CARE (2273) or visit them online.

    We know caregiving can be a full-time job. To help, here are a few organizations* that offer a wide range of information and resources to support family caregivers:

    • Caregiver Action Network - Offers videos, checklists, and fact sheets on dozens of issues from navigating Medicare to tracking symptoms, as well as an online discussion forum.
    • Family Caregiver Alliance - Connects caregivers to local and online support groups, and offers disease-specific information and tips.  
    • AARP Caregiving Resource Center - Offers caregiver resource guides, including helpful apps and tips on accessing assistance.
    • Daily Caring - Offers tips and resources to help caregivers make sure they’re taking care of themselves.
    • CDC’s Disability and Health Resource Center - Provides helpful information about caring for someone whose condition has led to a physical disability.
