November is National Family Caregivers Month

South Carolina State House Lt. Governor Henry McMaster and Irmo native Leeza Gibbons marked the occasion recognizing the nearly 800,000 South Carolinians who provide free care and support to chronically ill and disabled loved ones.

“470 billion dollars in unpaid care is what caregivers provide. that’s twice as much as home care and nursing care combined so just think about what a tremendous service from family members who are offering their love, their time,” Gibbons said.
