Who is a caregiver?

Nearly 1/3 of Americans serve as family caregivers and millions more serve as paid professional caregivers. The Caregiver Space is sharing their stories.

 Meet Jennifer

I am the caregiver of my fiancé (would be husband, if finances allowed it). We have been together for 5 years, and I have been his caregiver for 4. I just wanted to express that this is the most rewarding job/relationship I have ever been involved during my life. Not only have I seen a huge change, determination, and motivation in him, but also in myself. I have truly been lost in this world without finding this incredibly strong man! He truly his my savior, as much as he would fight you in telling you I’m his. We always stick together, but that doesn’t always make things any easier. There are always hard trials and tribulations, that always make us stronger on the other side! It is always so nice to see that we aren’t alone in this, sometimes very cold and cruel, world. We have seen some incredibly wrong injustices, especially in the medical field. We just want all the caregivers and their loved ones alike to know you are not alone!
