Some statistics to think about... 63% of caregivers report having poorer eating habits than non-caregivers and 58% indicate worse exercise habits than before caregiving responsibilities. 23% of family caregivers caring for loved ones for 5 years or more report their health is fair or poor. More than 1 in 10 (11%) of family caregivers report that caregiving has caused their physical health to deteriorate.
