November is National Family Caregivers Month! If there was ever a group of people who deserve to be honored and celebrated its family caregivers. 53 million strong family caregivers provide close to $500 billion annually of unpaid care to their loved ones. Caregiver self-care tends to be low on the list of priorites when trying to balance life as a cregiver, but it is a vital and important practice. Join me as I chat all about it with Dana Mercaldi.
Dana Mercaldi serves as the Corporate Director of Sales and Marketing for Mainstay Senior Living, a Lakeland, Florida headquartered Senior Living company that has communities spanning the reach from Tennessee to Tampa. Dana has been an advocate for seniors and their loved ones since 1988 and holds a degree in Business and Leadership Studies from the University of South Florida. She also happens to be a family caregiver herself.
