America is approaching an elder care cliff. Will you, your marriage and your career survive the ELDER CARE CLIFF? There are approximately 65 million UNPAID family caregivers in America and 46% of them are in the work force. Surprisingly, the caregiver dies either before or shortly after the person that they are caring for due to the stress associated with caregiving. Caregiving is the new SILENT KILLER of people, love, marriage and family.

STELLA NSONG is building the bridge to transform America’s elder care cliff through education, innovation and collaborative initiatives. Her book The Caregiver’s Cliff Notes:

27 Things To Do When Your Parents Are Losing Their Independence offers a road map to surviving caregiving and it shows what 76 million baby boomers need to know when it comes to finding caregiving solutions outside of the nursing home.  http://www.eldercarecliffreport.org/
