Family caregivers don’t go home at 5 or 6 o’clock. We are on duty 24 hours a day because this is something we care about, says author Suzanne Mintz. "Caregivers are literally underpinning the health care system. The value of the services we provide for ‘free’ is estimated to be $196 billion a year." But who helps them? Much has been written about the caregiver’s role in helping an ill or disabled person, but little has been said about the caregiver - how to care for yourself as you care for others. This message to caregivers addresses issues such as the impact of caregiving on caregivers, the four principles of Caregiver Self-Advocacy, and reaching out for help.
