The Inn Celebrates National Family Caregiver Month

Caregivers perform a tremendous, selfless service for family or loved ones with rare or serious illnesses who need helping hands to complete everyday tasks. However, providing care for someone else can be stressful and taxing – no matter how much caregivers love those they take care of. To honor caregivers for all they do and show them our appreciation, The Children’s Inn is celebrating National Family Caregiver Month by showering caregivers with extra daily treats this week:

  • Monday – complimentary water bottles
  • Tuesday – breakfast bar
  • Wednesday – dessert bar
  • Thursday – fall essentials giveaway
  • Friday – coffee bar

To support caregivers throughout the year, The Inn features regularly scheduled activities to help relieve caregiver stress including:

  • Weekly caregiver gathering with the NIH’s Cantor Mike for music and conversation
  • Complimentary massages
  • Monitored activities for children that allow caregivers to leave them with another adult and take a break
  • Wellness tips from an expert
  • Free haircuts provided by a professional stylist
  • Caregiver nights that provide separate activities and meals for children and caregivers
  • Free exercise classes offered three times a week, including yoga and Tabata
  • Homework support for children that allows caregivers to take time for themselves
  • Spiritual support provided twice a week
