Caregiving: Fall into a Healthy Routine

Caregiver Seeks Help for Loved OneMost Americans will become caregivers at some point in their lives. Approximately 66% of family caregivers are women. The typical caregiver is married and employed, with children under the age of 18 at home. It's no surprise that many caregivers find themselves burning the candle at both ends, as they juggle work and parental responsibilities with their caregiving duties.




 
Stories of Caring
 

For Kris, a diagnosis for her forgetfulness came as a relief. She now knew what she was dealing with: Alzheimer's disease. She was only 46. I think there comes a point in everyone’s life when we pause to reflect on the past, realize the present, and look to the future. That happened for me at the age of 46. I’d been married for over 20 years, our son was in his first year of college, I was happy in my job and my husband was looking forward to retirement. We were all healthy, tried to exercise, eat right and live an active life.
