Carallel Caregiving can be Challenging and Carallel Makes it Easier Life comes at you fast, and sometimes in the most challenging of ways. What would you do if a loved one got sick in a debilitating way and needed to be looked after? What if you have to put your own life on hold and step into the role of a caregiver? Nearly 44 million people do this every day for a family member. That challenge is the point and purpose of an organization called Carallel, created by caregivers for caregivers. “It's important to recognize that caregiving is a journey and oftentimes a progression for spouses, partners, and for adult children, to help their parents age in a manner they want,” said Shara Cohen, President and CEO of Carallel.
