The Color of Money
Caregivers are stretched — emotionally and financially
You probably didn’t know that November is National Caregivers Month. And you probably didn’t know because there are no big celebrations. The 65 million people who give time and money to care for sick or disabled relatives do so in relative obscurity. A friend sent me a link to a public service announcement created by the Ad Council and AARP. The 32-second video captures caregivers silently screaming from the frustrations, paperwork, and money issues that come with the job. I cried while watching it. Still the ad made me feel better knowing that I wasn’t alone.
