November is National Family Caregivers Month


Every year more Americans are providing care for someone with a medical condition, a disability or the concerns of aging. The numbers are staggering – over one-third of adults in the U.S. are identified as caregivers. It doesn’t have to be family member – a friend or neighbor can be a caregiver, and it isn’t just elders who need care. Many parents of special needs kids or spouses of returning veterans are finding the stress of caregiving to be difficult and lonely.
