"..... the caregiver becoming ill or dying."

I'm researching for a presentation on Caregiver Stress in my Geriatric Nursing Course and bumped into you quite by accident....what a wonderful surprise! My dad and I are no longer participating in that trial but your vid is excellent. I would love to include the above stat in my geriatric presentation but I can't without a ref and am hoping you can provide???

On behalf of those of us still walking this path, thank you for speaking for and to us. What an amazing tribute to your husband and a testament to your own compassion and perseverance.

Be well,
