The Invisible Caregiver

This drawing for WebMD accompanies a story called Invisible Caregivers. Taking care of a sick or elderly loved one can save Americans millions in health expenses. But it also can take a great  toll on the family caregiver. The isolating nature of this task can cause depression, financial stress, poor health and guilt (from lack of attention to other family members and careers). Thanks to art director Brittany Long for this vital assignment. Below are some spot illustrations which accompanied the story.

The average American has seven family members who will care for them in a lifetime.
Many longterm caregivers suffer from depression
