If you have a friend who is caring for someone in need of constant care, you might feel there is little you can do to help. But there are things you can do to offer relief, support, and reassurance that your friend is not alone.
CareZone is a web application designed to help family caregivers manage the many aspects of their job, all in one place. And the best part? It’s free.
According to a survey included in the 2016 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures, the average family caregiver spends $5,000 a year caring for a loved one with dementia.
Statistics show that the typical family caregiver is a woman in her 50s, but according to an article recently published in The Washington Post, that picture is changing. Young adults are increasingly stepping in to care for aging loved ones, and that trend is expected to continue.
