Did you know more than one third (37 percent) of employed caregivers consider their caregiving situation to be highly stressful emotionally? And almost 40 million Americans have provided unpaid care to an adult in the prior year (AARP & NAC, 2015).
Mayo Clinic offers in-home Back Up Care through Bright Horizons 24/7-365 days a year if you need to go to work and your loved one needs temporary in-home assistance.

Call 877-BH-CARES (242-2737) to inquire.
