November 14, 2013: November is National Family Caregivers Month. According to the Caregiver Action Network, about 29% of the U.S. population will provide care for a chronically ill, disabled, or aged family member or friend during a given year, spending an average of 20 hours a week providing care. 

 

In this episode, a home health physical therapist discusses the demanding role of a caregiver, and how, sometimes, the caregiver themself is in need of assistance.  She offers tips on how to prepare for the role, and how to maintain health and happiness while providing care.
