About this episode

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.
