Coast Guard Family Month: CG SUPRT for caregivers

With November being Coast Guard Family Month, many think about their spouses and children. But often, family also includes older family members that have become dependent on your care. Caring for an elderly relative can be a wonderful time for both of you to get closer, but it also can become demanding, stressful, unpredictable and exhausting, taking a toll on you and even causing difficulties at work. November is also National Family Caregivers Month and CG SUPRT would like to highlight the resources and services available to make caregiving easier and to support the caregivers in your family.
