The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Acknowledges Caregivers As Unsung Heroes And Calls For A Show Of Appreciation.
The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, speaking on topics in elder law calls attention to National Caregivers Day on March 3rd, while acknowledging that caregivers deserve to be acknowledged for their service any day and every day.
DECATUR, GA, March ••, 2023: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “March 3rd Is National Caregivers Day, But It Should Be Every Day,” Ms. Pawley provides a nudge to anyone who is benefiting from the services of a caregiver.
Pawley writes, “Many people and organizations wait until November – the main month where most Americans already express gratitude for their many blessings – to acknowledge caregivers throughout that month.” She continues, “I don’t know how the month and the designated day of March 3rd got so far apart, but, in my opinion, caregivers deserve to be celebrated, recognized and greatly appreciated every single day of every month throughout the year. Caregivers are the unsung heroes of our age.” She asks, “Did you know that 29% of the U.S. population – that’s about 65 million people – are caregivers? Over 40 million of those caregivers are unpaid and include many as young as 15 years of age.”
As Pawley points out, “Unpaid caregivers deserve special recognition even though they do not seek it or expect recognition. They typically do what they do because it needs to be done and because it is the right thing to do.” She further states, “They give their time and attention freely and often they spend their own money to care for a loved one, usually an elderly family member. Caregiving can be a thankless task. If you have a caregiver tending to someone you love,” Pawley urges, “take some time, even if it is not on March 3rd, to show your appreciation. “

Born and raised in the Tidewater area of Virginia to a tightknit family with strong military service roots, Shannon learned from an early age the value of hard work and the importance of social awareness to ensure you always leave a situation in a better place than how you entered it.
