Lily Liu, AARP Virginia, hosted Melissa Barber, VirginiaNavigator, for a Caring Conversation on November 13, 2020.  In recognition of November as National Caregiver Month, they carried the message “Know you are not alone” to the community of caregivers.  Liu began the conversation noting former First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s observation on caregiving.  She said there are really only four types of people in the world: (1) someone who is a family caregiver now, (2) someone who might have been a family caregiver and that journey has ended, (3) someone who will be a family caregiver, and (4) someone who themselves will need care.
