Caregiving. How Hard Can It Be?

I worked in the caregiving industry, but not hands-on care. After mom's surgery, it was my time to help so I stepped up. After all, how hard can caregiving really be? Well, I found out and it changed how I view the world. I now truly understand what families go through and have a new appreciation for professional caregivers. My story is not unique, but it is eye-opening.

Aging and the Flu

The flu can cause serious complications like pneumonia and bronchitis that may necessitate hospitalization. In some cases, these complications can even be fatal. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), adults 65 and older accounted for between 70 and 85 percent of flu-related deaths and between 50 and 70 percent of flu-related hospitalizations in recent years.
