More than 65 million Americans are caregivers, according to a 2017 article in Forbes magazine, with nearly 1 in 10 caregivers over the age of 75. Many of these individuals are managing the care of a parent whose health or independence has deteriorated, in addition to managing a career, relationship, and children of their own.
Caregivers Appreciation Day (March 3) recognizes the tremendous contributions of caregivers, as well as sharing information to help others understand the responsibilities they shoulder, and tips to ensure caregivers are maintaining their own health and wellness.
Information for Caregivers
Because they are designed by Baby Boomers, each Windsong home is created with the unique and changing needs of Boomers in mind. Stepless entry and wide doorways allow for easy access for wheelchairs, walkers, or simply armloads of groceries. Secondary bedrooms with accessible bathrooms provide a space for an elderly parent as well as guests, and are separate from the master suite so caregivers have privacy and a place to relax. And neighborhoods are comprised of homeowners who share similar life-stage experiences – a built-in support network!
