National Caregiving Month- Caregiver Wellness

Caregiving is a tough job.  November is National Caregiving Month, we remember the people who lovingly give baths, clean houses, shop for, and comfort the millions of elderly and ill people who are friends and loved ones.

Most people don’t think of themselves as being a caregiver, but you are indeed a caregiver if you provide emotional, financial, domestic or medical support to an older adult or disabled loved one.

The latest 2020 statistics show the increasing numbers of people impacted by caregiving responsibilities.

  • Over 78 million people dedicate their time caring for a family member or friend in need.
  • More than 11 million Americans are caring for an adult family member due to health needs or disability, while also caring for children at home.
  • Over a million young people, aged 8 to 18, care for an adult relative on a daily basis.

The need for affordable care solutions for our rapidly aging population is very evident.

The strength it takes to support those who need it most, as well as the emotional, physical and financial toll it can take on caregivers, should not to be overlooked. Although family caregiving is a very rewarding experience, most caregivers also experience a significant decline in their own health and well-being.

Caregiving is a noble, important role deserving of honor and support. Although family caregiving is stressful and risky for your health, there is hope and help available.

Check out the latest helpful hints and community resources because if you don’t take care of yourself, you can’t take care of anyone else.
