KIRKLAND, Wash., Aug. 13, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- All Americans owe a debt of gratitude to those who work for a living. But what about our caregivers, who selflessly tend the disabled - helping them eat, bathe, go to the bathroom, dress? Our society could not function without caregivers, yet we give them short shrift when handing out thank-you's. To rectify this, LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP) proposes a Labor Day token of thanks.

KIRKLAND, Wash., Aug. 13, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- All Americans owe a debt of gratitude to those who work for a living. But what about our caregivers, who selflessly tend the disabled - helping them eat, bathe, go to the bathroom, dress? Our society could not function without caregivers, yet we give them short shrift when handing out thank-you's. To rectify this, LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP) proposes a Labor Day token of thanks.

"It doesn't have to be fancy or costly," says Denise Gott, LTCFP's National Sales Manager. "Just some token to those who have helped you or someone in your family. Labor Day is the perfect time for it."

The token could be:
* A greeting card,
* Flowers, or a single rose,
* An edible treat,
* A framed picture of the person they're helping,
* A simple phone call, or
* In-person thanks with a hug.

"The main thing is to let the caregiver know you care about them and truly appreciate all they do, delivered in a spirit of devotion," Gott says.

Some caregivers are low-paid professionals such as nurses and home-care aides. Most, numbering in the millions, are unpaid relatives of those needing care, mostly female, who sacrifice careers and personal lives. "Millions of men provide care services, too," says Gott. "Chances are most us will become caregivers at some time. And most of us will need caregiving of some form eventually. So let's get in the habit of showing our appreciation for this great labor of love."

Gott's organization makes life easier for unpaid caregivers (mostly family members) by providing funds for professional care through affordable long-term care insurance. This allows breadwinners to maintain family income and lifestyle.
