    Thank You for joining us today on 'Be A Healthy Caregiver' hosted by Chris MacLellan, 'The Bow-Tie-Guy' on Blog Talk Radio! 
    Today's Guest: Nate Purpura from eHealth, Inc.
    Today's Topic: The Financial Struggles in Caregiving
    There is an estimated 44 million working family Caregivers in the United States today. Recent studies also indicate that due to time off of work, Caregivers can expect to lose wages totaling over $140,000!  According to eHealth Insurance, about one-third of adults who provide unpaid care for their elderly parents say they'll have to use their own retirement savings to help their parents financially. 
    Our guest today, Nate Purpura, is the Director of Public Relations for eHealthmedicare.com and eHealthinsurance.com - division of eHealth, Inc has spent the last decade working in the health care and insurance industries. 
    Having a grasp of finances is a critical component to Caregiving, but at times, an area that can be left unattended.
    Through our conversation with Nate, we will learn why Caregivers often struggle with finances, along with gaining some helpful tips to make this area of our Caregiving journey less stressful so that we can all 'Be A Healthy Caregiver!'
