Report Abuse or Neglect

With already more than 40 million family caregivers in the U.S., Coronavirus-related social distancing orders and closures have dramatically increased the number of family caregivers who are providing short-term or long-term care to older loved ones.

Caregiver stress and burnout run high during “normal” times, but during COVID-19, those caring for elderly or disabled loved ones face profound demands.  Without even respite care to rely on for a break, many caregivers are literally working around the clock.
