The Cost of Family Care Giving

Are you ready to be discouraged? Read the statistics at FamilyCareGiver.org and see the toll that family care giving takes on Gen Sandwichers, the health care system, and the economy. It’s pretty amazing.

How big is the issue? A nationwide CBS poll of 1,142 adults, conducted Feb. 8-11, found that 1-in-5 respondents has cared for an elderly parent and 43 percent of those people say that caring for the parent has caused disputes within the family.

Okay, Pat, you're correct, we have something in common. I'm going to link my blog over to yours, and if you want to do the same, that would be a nice way to become friends.

I think the worst part is when the balogne is picked OUT of the sandwich and that's all they eat. Ya' gotta' get a little rubbery, ya' know?

Now if only friends family and loved ones could get paid for their time caregiving. Think of the relief on the health care system!
