Family Caregiving 101

Neffiti Picks! in Health:Support_Groups: 44 million people in the U.S. care for an adult who is chronically ill or struggling with age. Nearly 90% of these caregivers assist family members; more than half continue to hold down a full- or part-time job while doing so. Two years ago, the National Family Caregivers Association and the National Alliance for Caregiving launched a campaign designed to assist and bolster the people who give so much of themselves while supporting others. Family Caregiving 101 is an integral part of that endeavor. It offers practical help in managing at-home, ad hoc nursing, including navigating the healthcare maze and taking care of yourself. It circulates stories from caregivers across the country. It details signs of stress in overworked individuals. It answers the top 10 questions asked by family and friends engaged in such guardianship. And, perhaps most importantly, it says again and again: You are not alone.
