June 1, 2022

On May 17th, the Andrew Heiskell Library held a one-hour program presented as part of a short series on financial literacy, where we were joined by the authors of three recent books on family caregiving to discuss the financial impact of caring for a loved one through serious illness or disability. More than 53 million Americans today care for a family member or friend, and the resources available to ease both the economic and emotional strain of caregiving are few. This program highlighted the personal stories of authors Deborah Cohan, Chris Gabbard, and Kate Washington; addressed the broader systemic problems surrounding caregiving today; and offered insight into planning for the financial challenges it may cause.
