The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, Takes Time To Take Notice Of The Millions Of Unpaid Caregivers Who Could Use Some TLC.
Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Owner, Shannon Pawley, encourages informal caregivers to seek out local support groups for much-needed relief, understanding and validation.
DECATUR, GA, August 26, 2021: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “Caregiver Support Groups – When The Caregiver Needs Some TLC.” Ms. Pawley acknowledges the exceptional burden informal caregivers carry and their often-overlooked needs.
Pawley states, “Informal caregiving is widespread throughout the country.” She continues, “According to recent statistics, there are over 34 million Americans providing unpaid care to an adult age 50 or older. And roughly half of those caregivers are tending to someone with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.” According to Pawley, “Without informal caregivers the healthcare system would literally buckle under the case load. But,” she emphasizes, “what is becoming more and more critical is the emotional and physical state of these unpaid caregivers. Are they getting the care they need to keep on keeping on?”
“The issue is so common,” Pawley writes, “that Caregiver Support Groups have sprung up to provide an outlet for these unsung heroes.” She further elaborates, “The groups provide caregivers with an outlet to express their needs and to be heard. There are online groups that can be a true lifeline, especially during these pandemic times when going out to in-person meetings is not only challenging but could be life-threatening. Sometimes, just being able to talk with someone else who really understands what you’re going through reduces enough stress, provides much-welcome validation and gives a connection to help you carry on. Many local hospitals also provide in person support groups.”
