The Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) recognizes and thanks family caregivers who ensure people with disabilities can live safely and productively in their homes and communities during November Family Caregiver Month. About 80% of all care in the state is provided by family caregivers, according to the Wisconsin Family and Caregiver Support Alliance, of which BPDD is a member.
The Governor has proclaimed November Family Caregiver Month in recognition of the contributions of family caregivers. You can read the proclamation here.
