Good morning to all my fellow caregivers out there — and a special hello to their patients. May today be a decent day for each of you.
While doing some writing I came across a national report on caregiving and caregivers released just this past year.
The full report can be accessed at this link and it is free: http://www.caregiving.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/2015_CaregivingintheUS_Final-Report-June-4_WEB.pdf
Lots of detail, but it helped me to better understand how many folks are in also in my category (high burden caregiving), that my struggles are not unique to me, some food for thought on the future of caregiving, and how impactful caregiving is on caregivers.
I realize it may be TMI, but as a pdf you can simply click and save it for future reading too.
Peace and strength
