Century Tree’s TheCareGivingLife.com is a website to help family caregivers, home health workers and patients contend with advanced chronic diseases. Our main focus is the 21 million Americans suffering from advanced congestive heart failure, type II diabetes, COPD and Alzheimer’s disease.
The United States is in the midst of a chronic disease crisis. 133 million Americans suffer from at least one chronic disease. Of greatest concern, however, are the 21 million Americans who are disabled, homebound and unable to contend with daily self-care tasks like bathing and dressing.
Thankfully, we have a veritable army of 1,000,000 home health workers and 52,000,000 family caregivers who are highly motivated to care for and nurture patients, and ease their suffering.
