Caregiving 101 (Part 2)

Tennessee Tech University, Cookeville, TN 2015

Caregiving is different in today’s world, unlike anything any previous culture in history has encountered. In the past, without the benefits of the medication and advanced medical technologies we see today, people often died at a much younger age. Now large numbers of people are living longer than ever before, requiring more care in their final years. One thing that hasn’t changed, however, are the common bonds that tie all caregivers together.
