Hello and Welcome!
Family caregivers are strong, loving, and devoted individuals. They care for family members out of love and devotion, often at the loss of their own self-care.
The effects of caring for a chronically or terminally ill family member are rapidly becoming a public health concern for the family caregiver. There is an average of 44 million caregivers in this country alone, providing unpaid emotional and physical Esupport.
Many of these caregivers are ill prepared to care for the family member, often at risk to their own health. These caregivers suffer from emotional, mental and physical ailments arising from the stressful nature of caring for others.
