There are only four kinds of people in the world. Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.
~Rosalyn Carter

There are so many potential caregiving situations that no one really knows if or when they might become a caregiver. Many people care for their parents, and many others care for spouses, children, other family members, neighbors, friends. Caregivers are all different ages -- one-in-four of the nearly 40 million family caregivers is a millennial. Some situations can be rewarding and even uplifting, while other times it can be just a long, hard slog.

The AARP has a lot of good videos about and for family caregivers.
