May and June are joyous occasions for most people. Sadly, Mother's Day and Father's Day can be also be sad and stressful to many. Especially caregivers. According to the National Alliance on Caregiving, more than 65 million people, 29% of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year and spend an average of 20 hours per week providing care for their loved one.
There are many resources available to caregivers but the system of support is fragmented. That is why Fast Forward Consulting is launching a national survey to better understand the needs of caregivers as it develops a smart phone application designed to coordinate care, bring caregiver communities together, and most importantly help ease caregiver stress and improve their health.
