National Caregivers Day - Third Friday in February


National Caregivers Day is observed annually on the third Friday in February.

Across the nation dedicated health care professionals serve those who require long-term or hospice care.  National Caregivers Day honors those men and women dedicated to providing these vital services.

Caregivers deliver a variety of services from personal care to medical services with compassion and professionalism.  Their days may be long and demanding, but they provide support to those who need it most.

National Caregivers Day recognizes caregivers providing quality, compassionate care every day.


Take time to thank a caregiver for their dedication and care of our loved ones.  Use #NationalCaregiversDay to post on social media.


National Caregivers Day was founded by Providers Association for Home Health & Hospice Agencies (PAHHHA) in 2015.  Its first observance is February 19, 2016.  For more information please visit
