This month, caregivers across the country are getting recognized as part of an annual awareness month.
Gertrude Avirom is one of 54 million Americans who cares for a loved one. Eighteen years ago her husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. TMH's adult day services provides some relief and some alone time.
Gertrude says, "When I go home, I will sometimes just watch television or sleep, and then other times I clean, cook, go grocery shopping."
Tallahassee Memorial Hospital is presenting a free expo December 6. The goal is to provide caregivers with useful tips and resources to make life less stressful. For information, call (850) 431-4928.
