Many of us have taken on the role of caregiver, one that can be filled with stress.
In a recent study, 34.2 million Americans identified as informal caregivers. As a result of their caregiving role:
- 38 percent reported high levels of emotional stress;
- 19 percent reported a high level of physical strain; and
- 17 percent have experienced a high level of financial strain.
That's why it's important to keep yourself healthy — mentally, physically and emotionally.
