Nearly 7 million U.S. Latinos provide unpaid care to aging or older relatives.
Many Latinos are expected to take on the respectable, but high-stress, role and often don’t consider themselves as caregivers.
How can we ensure that caregivers along with their loved ones are receiving the help and support that they need?
Let’s use #SaludTues on Nov. 7, 2023, to explore the important roles that caregivers take on along with how we can better support them and their loved ones.
