Kari Berit on KARE 11’s Showcase Minnesota – Tune in Tuesday November 23, 2010 at 10 AM

November is National Family Caregiving Month and Kari Berit is spreading the word that America needs to discuss caregiving. More than 65 million people are caregivers in America. According to new research by The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc. and ComPsych Corporation, younger Baby Boomers are carrying the largest burden of family care responsibilities, with more than half saying they’ve taken time off from work due to their caregiving responsibilities. The purpose of the month is to raise awareness of family caregivers, to celebrate the efforts of caregivers, educate caregivers, and increase support for family caregivers. Berit will speak on the topic of caregiving and about her book, The Unexpected Caregiver: How Boomer Can Keep Mom and Dad Active, Safe, and Independent, Tuesday, November 23 on Showcase Minnesota at 10 am.
