Each May, the Administration for Community Living (ACL) recognizes “Older Americans Month” – a time to honor older Americans for their contributions and demonstrate the nation’s commitment to helping them stay safe and active. Yet as the number of older Americans grows, so does the number of family caregivers who are instrumental in ensuring they get the proper care. In fact, it is estimated that more than 65 million U.S. adults serve as family caregivers today.
EasierLiving, an online shopping site and information resource dedicated to helping people of all ages live their best lives through simplified caregiving, is kicking off a month-long celebration of “Older Americans Month” at this week’s AARP’s Life@50+ National Event, May 8-10, in Boston (Booth #3030). In addition to introducing itself to the over-50 crowd, EasierLiving is using the event to discuss the evolving definition of the family caregiver and remind those people who dedicate their time, money and resources to care for their loved ones that they must also care for themselves.
