From National Hero Day To Everyday Heroes: The Impact Of In-Home Caregivers

National Heroes’ Day is celebrated in the United States on October8, 2023. Other countries around the world celebrate this special day at various times of the year and with a slightly different focus.

This nationally recognized day is relatively new and was first observed in 2020. The focus of this day in the US is to shine a light on the well-known heroes across the country but also to celebrate people in our own communities who go out of their way to provide support, assistance, inspiration, motivation, and action to help others. These individuals include teachers, first responders, military, essential workers, healthcare professionals, and our exceptional team of caregivers at Capital City Nurses.
