Professional caregiver advocate, Rotarian Christine Sotmary, Executive Director of Caregiver Access, considers the rarely- discussed topic of caring for the caregivers, the people who help the ill or disabled in their own homes. People live longer today, so more families are involved in such situations. The caregivers live under enormous pressure caregiving and need support themselves. Ms. Sotmary shares her years of research into every aspect of caregiving, and provides important information about documents and programs that inform or aid caregivers. Caregiver Access also introduces student volunteers to careers in the medical, legal, and financial fields.
