About this Episode
According to a research study by AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving, there are approximately 43.5 million caregivers in the United States that have provided unpaid care to an adult or child in the last 12 months, in 2019. The United States has 331,002,651 citizens.
This is a subject that impacts 13% of the population, and frankly, there isn’t enough support and awareness on the subject to offer adequate support. This issue is something that needs to be discussed. That is why I invited our guest today to share his first-hand experience with us, on what it’s like to suddenly find himself in the position of Caregiver and how he manages to keep himself healthy both physically and mentally while doing so.
Not only is Brian a caregiver he is also still a working professional. Brian oversees the development and delivery of client solutions for L+C Learning and brings over 25 years of corporate, non-profit, and academic experience to his role.
For most Americans, establishing a work-life balance is already a challenge, Brian not only offers us insight into how he is managing it but resources and ways of making it all work despite the challenges that come along.
