5 Online Resources for Caregivers

More than 60 million Americans are unpaid caregivers to family, friends and neighbors, and the need for these caregivers is predicted to continue growing as the older adult population increases, according to Mental Health America. Each year, the Caregiver Action Network (CAN) sponsors Family Caregivers Month in November as a time to recognize and honor family caregivers. CAN is a nonprofit organization that provides free education, peer support and resources to family caregivers.
