Each year, more and more people are caring for loved ones with a chronic condition, disability, or the effects of old age. The Caregiver Action Network reports that as many as 90 million people in the United States have taken on the role of caregiver, with two out of every five adults being caregivers in some way, shape or form.
November is National Family Caregivers Awareness month. In 2013, 39% of all Americans were caring for a loved one who was sick or disabled, a 9% increase from 2010.
