November is National Family Caregivers Month. In honor of these selfless individuals, I have written a blog for More.com, “Caregivers Deserve Year-Round Applause,” which focuses on the wide range of challenges facing the nation’s estimated 50 million caregivers. I share statistics, talk about AAUW’s policy recommendations, and close with a quote from Rosalyn Carter, who once said
There are only four kinds of people in the world — those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, and those who will need caregivers.
