- November is National Family Caregivers Month. In the U.S., more people than ever before are providing care support for older relatives and friends. They are helping loved ones manage their health care and medications, assisting with the activities of daily living, making sure their loved ones are safe at home, or serving as an important member of their loved one’s care team at their senior living community. Caregivers help with legal and financial issues and keeping their loved ones socially connected.
Sounds like a full-time job, doesn’t it? Well, many caregivers are also working full-time and taking care of their own children—a recipe for stress and overload. Their own healthcare often falls through the cracks.
