Infographic – Caregivers often neglect their own needs while providing care
According to a new survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, 35 percent of caregivers have skipped routine care, 33 percent skipped a recommended treatment, and 31 percent didn’t go to the doctor at all when sick or injured as a result of their caregiving responsibilities. Others cite impacts to their personal finances. Still, 60 percent say they feel supported in their role as a caregiver.
