Who are America’s Family Caregivers?
Rosalyn Carter said it best: â€œThere are only four kinds of people in the world â€“ those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregiversâ€. Caregivers are needed for family members of all ages. With appropriate information and support, family caregivers can help their loved ones across the lifespan.
So, who are family caregivers â€¦ It’s a complicated question and answers may vary depending upon whom you ask. Physicians may give an answer different from social workers and researchers may undoubtedly quote statistics. However, if you really want to know who America’s family caregivers are, you need to ask them directly.
