How COVID-19 is affecting caregivers

Caroline Tapp-McDougall, the publisher of Caregiver Solutions magazine and author of the forthcoming “Complete Guide for Family Caregivers,” tells Verywell that COVID-19 turned up the volume on the caregiver role. “Before that, there wasn’t that label, so to speak,” Tapp-McDougall says. “We were just doing our job within the family.”

Tapp-McDougall recommends that caregivers reach out to friends and family for help. “Sometimes it’s a phone call. Sometimes it’s arranging an Uber delivery to get somebody dinner. There’s all kinds of things that people can do to help out in those situations.”
