In celebrating National Carers Day and recognizing the Prime Minister’s statement on carers, we want as many individuals as possible to talk, text, and tweet about carers, also known as family caregivers. Through our theme this year, Caring at Home, we aim to raise awareness of carers’ valuable role in supporting older adults with frailty, individuals with complex, chronic disabling conditions, and those at end-of-life to stay safely at home

To facilitate your voice on twitter, we have prepared few tweets that you can simply add to your twitter handle on April 4th.
