Older adults have experienced a lot of historical events, time periods, and economic and cultural changes throughout their lives. From World Wars to the Civil Rights Movement, they were a firsthand witness to the world being shaped into what we know and see today.
While respite care services are commonly offered at communities or through organizations, many family caregivers are still unaware of what they entail.
