The Meaning of Labor Day

Thirteen decades have passed since the first Labor Day celebration in America, and so much has changed in the way our country recognizes this day. In 1882, Labor Day featured street parades highlighting the strength of the American worker and festivals for the enjoyment of workers and their families. Today, this day is still marked by parades, but now the celebrations include barbecues and end-of-summer vacations.

Although our celebrations have changed since the late 19th century, one thing has not: the importance of recognizing the efforts, contributions and impact of the American worker. For Cypress HomeCare Solutions, our employees truly make our company. Our caregivers connect our company with our clients, and we depend on them to be the providers of the best compassionate care in our industry. Our caregivers possess “heart,” and are willing to go above and beyond to meet and exceed the needs and expectations of our clients. For Cypress, providing care is a full-time venture — 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year — and responding to the needs of our clients is at the core of our business. With the help of our caregivers, we are able to find solutions and assist our clients in ways that address their individual needs.

On this Labor Day, we pause to take a moment to thank our caregivers and office personnel for their immense dedication to their jobs. We appreciate everything they do, and are proud to have them on our Cypress team! Most importantly, we would like to send a special thank you to all the family caregivers who are making differences in their aging loved one’s lives on a daily basis. We know first-hand how difficult this work can be at times and appreciate all that you are doing on behalf of so many individuals who have made our nation great.

Have a happy and safe Labor Day!
