We need your HELP!

Being a caregiver can easily turn into a full-time job. This is especially true for those who care for seniors over 65, for whom the average caregiver invests between 30 and 35 hours per week caring for their loved one according to researchers at Johns Hopkins University.  For Carolyn A. Brent and nearly 33 million other caregivers (50%), this burden must be shouldered while working a full time job outside of the home.

Brent was recently one of the 65.7 million Americans who serve as caregivers for someone who is ill, disabled or aged. Representing nearly a third of the US adult population, unpaid caregivers such as Carolyn are the largest source of long term care services in this country according to the Family Caregiver Alliance.

Their services are valued at nearly half a trillion dollars per year.
