“This year’s theme, ‘Family Caregivers Matter,’ resonates with health and social service related organizations across the board,” said Tai Venuti, manager of Strategic Alliances at Allsup. “They recognize the important and often demanding role family caregivers have in managing their loved one’s physical and mental health, and in many cases, their financial and emotional needs as well.
“It’s encouraging to see the growth of programs and resources tailored to family caregivers’ specific needs. For example, providing care for someone who has cancer is a much different experience than caring for a veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder.”
Caregivers can find programs and information from a variety of organizations in the Allsup True Help® Disability Web Expo’s Resource Center.
