One quarter of adults are presently caring for an aging parent or relative, with close to half (45%) of this group providing care for their spouse. The person responsible for providing this care is called the family caregiver. In most cases, the family caregiver is a spouse, the eldest daughter or the grown child who lives the closest to the parent(s) or other family member needing care.

While family caregiving is often very rewarding and a bonding experience, it can also be stressful and cause tension within families. According to a new survey by Home Instead Senior Care, 31% of family caregivers admit they’d like more help, and 25% resent other family members who don’t help out more.

That’s why Home Instead Senior Care created a new website with information for family caregivers, and a free caregiver stress test. See for yourself. Visit www.caregiverstress.com.
