Caregiving Of Family Is Major Commitment

February 18, 2013
By Mary Ann Spanos , The Post-Journal

For the last few months, I have joined millions of other Americans as a family caregiver. It's funny that many people don't even think of themselves as caregivers, probably because it's not something you sign up for or enroll in; it just happens, sometimes suddenly and sometimes gradually. Someone you know gets sick or injured and can no longer do certain tasks for themselves. Caregiving can be as simple as getting groceries from the market or taking someone to their doctor appointment or more complex like helping with bathing, dressing and managing medications. You may think,"I'm just helping out," and you are, but you are also a caregiver.
