As we celebrate National Caregiver Month this November and recognize the more than 65 million caregivers in the U.S., some are bound to be “celebrities.”
Many people feel that celebrity caregivers don’t really know the challenges and certainly don’t fret the costs of caregiving like the rest of us. But our CEO, Sherri Snelling, has interviewed numerous celebrities and found when it comes to caregiving – even famous people face a fragmented health system, difficulty with conversations with older parents, sadness or frustration over not being able to control a chronic illness or devastating diagnosis that affects a loved one and not knowing where to turn.
Following are some of the celebrities Sherri Snelling has interviewed over the years – not about their latest movie or TV show, album or book but about the role that is one we all will play in our lifetime: caregiver. These interviews show that we are all in the Cast of Caregivers.
