According to the Caregiving in the U.S. 2020 report recently released by the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP one in five adults in the US are providing unpaid care to an adult with a health or functional need. Are you one of these new caregivers needing help with your new role?
Why "Becoming a family Caregiver" could change your life
“I created Becoming a Family Caregiver (BFG) to bridge the gap between healthcare and homecare for caregivers. In our society, there is a flaw in our healthcare system. Family caregivers need training on how to do healthcare procedures at home. They need someone they can call with questions and one place to look up information. If they can see a procedure performed and read about their medical condition in one place, that’s a win-win.”
“I want BFG to meet that need. As a resource, I want it to be their “go-to” place for information, questions, and support. As a fellow caregiver, I want to walk across their bridge with them, encourage them, and safely see them to the other side.”
