The 2023 Drive for Inclusion Report Card takes a closer look at caregiving. Published during National Family Caregiver Month, this year's report card sheds light on both the rewards and struggles of caring for those with mobility challenges. The insights come from a survey of the caregiver members of The Driving Force, our online survey community. What emerged was a common thread of burnout and loneliness, with caregivers expressing sentiments like:
- "I wish the rest of the family appreciated all that I do,"
- "When will someone look out for my needs like I do for others?"
- "I need some time to myself."
The report card also underscored the challenges faced by caregivers, including physical, emotional, and financial strain. While the needs of individuals with disabilities remain at the forefront of many caregivers’ minds, this focus comes at a cost.
Read and share the full report, packed with findings, personal stories, and insights from caregivers. Together, we can all do a better job of caring for those who care for people with mobility challenges.
