Vacations for Caregivers of Family Members Increasingly Difficult

Mezzo, the national organization for caregivers of family members and volunteers, says that it has become increasingly difficult for these people to take vacations.  It now takes months to find temporary substitute caregivers, whereas in the past it only took weeks.  There are 2.6 million such caregivers in the Netherlands, which help family members, friends and neighbors. According to Mezzo, about 450,000 are overburdened by their responsibilities.
