November is National Family Caregivers Month. As a health insurer, one of the ways Highmark looks out for our seriously ill members is by providing them with a care manager to support their health care needs. But we know that many of our seriously ill members also have an extensive at-home support system in the form of caregivers. These caregivers provide help with everything from cooking to emotional support to medical paperwork.
