"
THE VAST MAJORITY OF OLDER MISSOURIANS WANT TO LIVE INDEPENDENTLY, AT HOME, AS THEY AGE.  AND, FAMILY-CAREGIVERS ARE THE ONES WHO PROVIDE THE BULK OF THAT ASSISTANCE.  IN FACT, MANY FAMILY-CAREGIVERS PERFORM MEDICAL- OR NURSING-TASKS FOR THEIR LOVED-ONES--EVEN THOUGH MOST RECEIVE LITTLE OR NO TRAINING FOR THESE DUTIES.  WE AIM TO RECOGNIZE THE HUNDREDS-OF-THOUSANDS OF FAMILY-CAREGIVERS--THROUGHOUT MISSOURI--WHO GIVE THEIR HEARTS, IN ORDER TO HELP OLDER LOVED-ONES REMAIN AT HOME.  AND, OUR GOAL IS TO RECOGNIZE THEIR CONTRIBUTIONS--AND THEIR DEDICATION."
