Episode Description

As America continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic, the economic and personal challenges surrounding the nation’s Family Caregiver Crisis have intensified significantly. Now, more than ever, the 1 in 5 Americans who are family caregivers are struggling to cope with the emotional, physical, and financial challenges posed by caring for aging loved ones – creating a new “Caregiver Career Crisis”. In 2020, the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP published a study showing the toll that this crisis is taking on the U.S., such as compromised health, financial burdens, career consequences, and a lack of resources and information. Our guest is a nationwide leader in long term care insurance and the financing of aging. He is also responsible for CareScout Caregiver Support Services, a program to provide guidance and support for caregivers. In this episode, Larry will lend his unique expertise and insight to the many challenges facing caregivers today.
