America’s Next Health Crisis; Caring for Our Aging Parents as People Live Longer Than Ever Before
66 million Americans are caregivers for someone they love, and that is 30% of the U.S. population. Some experts are predicting that figure will triple over the next decade. A longer life expectancy has led to an increased demand for family members to serve as caregivers. Caregiving can be a demanding, stressful and seemingly thankless job and often devastates families economically. It is without doubt this is the next health crisis facing our country. Joan shares her personal experience of caring for her 93 year old mother while still working and raising young children. We all know that the day will come when we have to deal with the demise of parent, a spouse or another family member. There is no escaping this aspect of life; however many find it difficult to discuss end-of-life issues. However Joan does just that as host of RLTV’s Taking Care with Joan Lunden, a program about family caregiving, and also as co-author of the soon-to-be-released Chicken Soup for the Soul; Family Caregivers.
