As our adult population continues to age, the more frequently adult children are finding themselves becoming caregivers for their aging parents or other loved ones. Studies show that over 34 million Americans are providing care to an adult age 50+ and 16 million are providing care for someone with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Taking on this responsibility to care for a loved one is a major decision and one that can drastically change your life. Caregiver Statistics revealed that a majority of caregivers on average spend 6 days a month providing assistance with the activities of daily living and 13 days each month spent on tasks like shopping, housekeeping, and giving medication. Too many caregivers try to take everything upon themselves and don’t let others help when they offer. This is very common in caregivers and those who do this often experience what is called Caregiver Stress Syndrome, a serious condition that can put both the caregiver and their loved one at risk. This is especially prevalent among the many caregivers who are balancing work and other family responsibilities.
