A recent study looked at the help received by primary caregivers of people with serious illnesses. The outcome of the study recommends that caregiving should "expand from the patient to the family unit."
55% of spousal caregivers in the study are taking on all of the caregiving tasks without outside help. Only 36% received help from other family members or hired staff.
