Nearly one-third of adults living in the Piedmont Triad area are family caregivers who could be at risk for heart disease, diabetes, depression and various other physical and emotional maladies as a result of caregiver distress.

Caregiver distress is a potentially dangerous condition brought on by the pressures of caring for a senior loved one.  In response to this growing issue, the local Home Instead Senior Care office has launched a public awareness campaign called Family Caregiver Stress Relief.

Those who are interested can visit FamilyCaregiverStressRelief.com to help family caregivers determine if they are at risk for distress and to minimize problems before they escalate.
