Carers Need Support Too

With around 35 million elderly Americans needing daily care of one kind or another, it should come as no surprise that there is a solid infrastructure of support services and resources available to them. However, a fact that is often overlooked is that in more than a third of cases, their full time caregiver is, themselves, over 65 years old.

While those who are lucky enough to grow old with their partner by their side feel blessed to have enjoyed so many years together, the needs of the caregiver are often overlooked, leading to them putting their own health at risk.

Read this guide to find out more about the support that is available to caregivers, to help everyone enjoy their later years to the full.
