caregivers at increased risk for stroke

My first reaction to reading this was “duh” followed by “thanks” for making insurance for caregivers more complicated and/or expensive.

“A study published in the February issue of Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association (Vol. 41 #2) reports that the strain associated with caring for a disabled spouse can significantly increase the caregiver’s risk of stroke…” Spouse Caregivers at Increased Risk for Stroke 

It occurs to me that the money spent to study caregivers’ risk of strokes could have been better spent significantly decreasing many caregivers’ risk of strokes. But then what do I know!

There should be a rule about spending money. Helping people should have a priority over studying them.

Whatever for caregiver convenience simply print and paste the following on your forehead.

Then again to all others concerned about a person needing care. A caregiver's health is at best an assumption.

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
