Addressing the Caregiving Crisis by Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter

Every once in a while family caregivers have someone of notice stand up and say that they are doing a good job, someone that recognizes what they are doing and expresses concern that help is desperately needed.

This January that person is Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter. In Preventing Chronic Disease, the CDC electronic newsletter for disease prevention, the former First Lady presents an editorial "Addressing the Caregiving Crisis" in which she talks about depression in older adults and about family caregivers.

I urge my readers to visit the Preventing Chronic Disease newsletter and read this editorial via the link above.
