Caring for Yourself When Caring for Others

Caregiving

Did you know that 43.5 million people provide unpaid care to an adult or child each year? And 60% of those caregivers are women. That's why it is important to take time to care for yourself and encourage other caregivers you know to do the same. One way to care for yourself is to make sure you keep yourself on track financially when caring for someone else.

Check out WISER's Financial Steps for Caregivers: What You Need to Know About Protecting Your Money and Retirement. And read WISER's recent blog series for features about caregiving and protecting your finances.
