November is National Family Caregivers Month!
By: John Schall, CEO, Caregiver Action Network
November is National Family Caregivers Month and this year’s theme this is Family Caregivers – Now More Than Ever!
Each year, more and more Americans are caring for a loved one with a chronic condition, disability, or the frailties of old age. There are as many as 90 million family caregivers in the U.S. today. And family caregivers, in turn, rely on help from volunteers – friends, neighbors, others in the community – with any number of the many tasks that go along with caregiving.
