According to a recent study commissioned by AARP, 20% of caregiving family members are spouses. While these individuals are more likely than non-spousal caregivers to provide medical assistance to their loved ones, they are often less likely to get help from friends and relatives or to receive in-home assistance from health care professionals. This disparity often leaves the caregivers feeling secluded and overwhelmed.

No, not at this time. Of eight children, it is number six - middle sister of five - who cares for my mother (past age 90) in NC. They live in the same spacious house, quite new.
