November is “National Family Caregivers Month” – which recognizes all of the selfless people who help care for their loved ones.

According to a recent survey, 36% of caregivers suffer from depression and anxiety, which is 114% more than non-caregivers.
In addition, 56% of caregivers say it’s not realistic for them to take a day off for their emotional and mental health.
A psychologist with the Cleveland Clinic says its important caregivers get time for themselves.
While it may not always be feasible, there are little things that can help.
