- During November, we have been celebrating National Family Caregivers Month. The year 2020 has certainly been a challenging one for the many family members and friends who are providing care for an older or disabled loved one! Whether their loved one lives with them, or in a senior living community, or independently, the workload of family caregivers went up sharply this year—according to an AP-NORC poll, by 36%! Caregivers might also be holding down a job under difficult circumstances. Perhaps they even have school-age children at home, which this year can feel like a full-time job unto itself!
