7th Annual Palliative Care Conference at Molloy College in Rockville Centre , NY.

The Maggie Kuhn awards are presented yearly by Presbyterian Senior Services. Last Thursday at the Harvard Club in New York City, the Rev. Greg Johnson from EmblemHealth gave Sheila a beautiful and touching introduction.
In her speech Sheila expressed her thanks to Maggie Kuhn for changing the world for people over 65 by standing up, and speaking out and to PSS for how humbled she was to be among their list of illustrious past award winners. She acknowledged the many contributions of the members of her organization, their funders and supporters. She also described her early years after founding the organization and the warm encouragement she received from the members of the NYC Family Caregiver Coalition. Greg Johnson received her special thanks for being a true champion of Share The Care from the minute she met him years ago.

ONE THING YOU CAN SAY ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION IS THAT WE WALK OUR TALK.
This year Phyllis, our administrator, jumped into action to start a Share The Care (STC) group to support a neighborhood friend, suffering from leukemia, cope with massive rounds of chemotherapy before her (successful) bone marrow transplant. “Andra’s Allies” is made up of friends from their local block association-a mini village of New York City neighbors-who were her key support for 10 months and continue their efforts as Andra slowly recovers. As Phyllis points out, this was an eye-opening experience for all involved.
Our organization is unique in that not only do we educate people about STC but we also train other organizations, institutions, and faith communities to use our model to help their caregivers, care recipients and families. This often means donations go elsewhere other than to ShareTheCaregiving. So please know that we truly rely upon our supporters to help us keep helping others. STC information is too critical not to share.
If you are part of an STC group, or are helped by one, please reflect on your experience and the value of having a ready-made plan to organize your group. We need you to TAKE ACTION to support our work generously this year.
Please consider a tax-deductible donation of $100, $500 or $1,000 to help us grow and expand our reach. You can even make a significant donation to STC as a whole group. Visit our website DONATE page that lists a variety of ways people can give. EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS – YOUR GIFTS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE
You may donate online at: www.sharethecare.org/donate or if you prefer by check. If sending a check, please send to the address below and make it payable to:
We wish you and yours A Happy, Healthy Holiday Season.
With gratitude for your much needed support,

Donations are used to cover the cost of books, and creating, printing, and mailing our training and educational program materials. We need funds to develop new educational materials. People who contact us for support are pleasantly surprised to get a “personal” email or telephone call back; something of a rarity these days.
STC RESEARCH STUDY UNDERWAY
In the Spring of 2015 researcher Amy Hegenger plans to publish and present the results from her study of the STC model. She has collected feedback from past and present STC group members, caregivers and care recipients.
The goal of the study is to attain evidenced-based status for STC by proving the many benefits derived from using the model.
NATIONAL FAMILY CAREGIVER MONTH PROCLAMATION…………..THANK YOU; THANK YOU; THANK YOU TO ALL FAMILY CAREGIVERS
NATIONAL FAMILY CAREGIVERS MONTH, 2014
– – – – – – –
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Each day, courageous individuals step forward to help care for family members in need, their quiet acts of selflessness and sacrifice telling a story of love and devotion. Across our country, parents and children, siblings and spouses, friends and neighbors heroically give of themselves to support those in their lives affected by illness, injury, or disability. During National Family Caregivers Month, we salute the people who play difficult and exhausting roles, and we recommit to lifting up these Americans as they care for their loved ones while protecting their dignity and individuality.
In the United States, more than 60 million caregivers provide invaluable strength and assistance to their family members, and as the number of older Americans rises, so will the number of caregivers. Many of these dedicated people work full time and raise children of their own while also caring for the needs of their loved ones. Caregivers support the independence of their family members and enable them to more fully participate in their communities, and as a Nation, we have an obligation to empower these selfless individuals.
My Administration continues to work to improve many of the resources on which caregivers depend. The Affordable Care Act invested in programs that expand home and community-based services. To lift up a new generation of service members — our 9/11 Generation — we are fighting to ensure those who care for them have access to the support they need, including financial assistance, comprehensive caregiver training, mental health services and counseling, and respite care. Many caregivers rely on workplace flexibility and reasonable accommodations, and this year my Administration held the first-ever White House Summit on Working Families to develop a comprehensive agenda that ensures hard-working Americans do not have to choose between being productive employees and responsible family members. And next year, we will host the White House Conference on Aging, which will focus on the needs of older Americans and those who care for them.
Not only this month, but every month, let us work alongside our Nation’s caregivers and make certain they are able to provide the best possible care for their loved ones for as long as necessary. Together, we recognize those who place service above self, including the women and men looking after our veterans. By offering them the same comfort, social engagement, and stability they bring to others, may we remind them that they are not alone.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, 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 2014 as National Family Caregivers Month. I encourage all Americans to pay tribute to those who provide for the health and well-being of their family members, friends, and neighbors.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of October, in the year of our Lord two thousand fourteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-ninth.
