Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter made the comments at a Tuesday conference in Atlanta, “Caregiving in the 21st Century: A National Conversation.”
The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving brought together leaders in business, politics and philanthropy, along with health care professionals.
The center said one goal of Tuesday’s event was to look ahead toward a nationwide effort to help caregivers across the U.S.
Carter described herself currently as a caregiver, hinting at looking after her husband and former president Jimmy Carter, who recently fell in his home and is recovering.
Then-First Lady Rosalynn Carter established the institute in 1987. It provides advocacy, education, research, and service to help more than 40 million caregivers in the United States.
