May 17, 2013 – Did you know that there are more than 34 million unpaid caregivers providing care to someone age 18 and older who is ill or has a disability? An estimated 21% of households in the United States are impacted by caregiving responsibilities. Are you caring for a loved one with a chronic illness or disability? How has it impacted you? What lessons have you learned that you can share with someone just starting out? My guest on today’s episode of Living Well with Dr. Peg is Nichelle Stiggers, Geriatric Care Manager and Program Coordinator for African American Family Caregiver Services in Denver.
