Who Will Care for the Caregivers?
There are some 40 million Americans that daily help a parent, grandparent, relative or neighbor with basic needs. Often, while working, parenting, or both. Family caregivers are generally unpaid, but the economic value of their care is estimated at $470 billion a year.
Caregivers are increasingly expected to manage illness at home as patients are discharged from hospitals quicker and sicker. It is important that a caregiver feel comfortable speaking up about their needs, and asking for information on support services available in their area.
