What it Means to be a Caregiver Today

Being a caregiver is one of the most important roles you’ll ever play. It can happen suddenly, with an accident or illness, or a new diagnosis. You may find yourself taking time off from work, making meals or handling finances. All of a sudden you’re in it. Listen to Anthony Cirillo's interview on Charlotte Today on what it means to be a caregiver today and how to help yourself. Here is a summary of what he shared:

  1. Talk about the issues before there is an issue.
  2. Look for an opening in daily life – an article or news story; something going on with a friend.
  3. Keep trying
  4. Work together with other family members
