Caregiver Health

Many people don't consider the help they provide “caregiving”—they see themselves as simply doing what should “just be done.” In reality, a caregiver is anyone who gives help to someone in need of care. Most caregivers are unpaid family members or friends who give care full- or part-time. It is estimated that 80% of caregivers give support 7 days per week, usually by helping with personal care and household chores.
