Personal stories, expert insights
The pandemic has exposed the difficulties experienced every day by tens of millions of caregivers. As highlighted in Stanford Center on Longevity’s Spotlight on Caregiving, many were already facing daunting challenges that negatively impacted mental and physical wellbeing, as well as financial security. The spread of COVID-19 has only exacerbated these issues.

Later, we discuss how to be financially secure as a caregiver with Cindy Hounsell (President of WISER), Roger Whitney (Host of the Retirement Answer Man podcast) and Ron Long (Head of Aging Client Services at Wells Fargo).
