Edna Kane Williams is the Vice-President, Multicultural Marketing for AARP. She talks to the Tom Joyner Morning Show about AARP’s I Heart Caregivers initiative and their partnership with the Tom Joyner Family Reunion.
“It used to be years ago, caring for our loved ones, we’ve been doing it for years. Increasingly this is a silent army of folk who are trying to work and keep their house together and provide almost 24-hour care. Caregivers used to make food and just change bedding, but now they’re actually providing a lot of hospital-like tasks. They’re changing dressing, they’re giving medicine, they’re having to assess symptoms,” Williams said.
