Dear Dr. Laura -
I listen to you often and sometimes hear calls regarding the stress of being a caregiver.
I work for a private non-profit and we have a program called the National Family Caregiver Support Program. We send respite workers into homes to offer just that; respite for the caregiver. This is a nationwide program and I know many of your listeners would benefit. We also have the Long Term Care Ombudsman Program also nationwide that assists families who have loved ones in long term care and need an advocate. I encourage your callers to also contact their local senior centers to find if these programs are available in their state. Thought you might want to put these on your website.
Thanks for your time.
