(OPEN):
42-MILLION AMERICANS ARE CARING FOR A PARENT OR OTHER LOVED-ONE.  AND, AS PART OF "NATIONAL FAMILY CAREGIVERS MONTH", IN NOVEMBER, "A-A-R-P" HAS RELEASED A POLL FINDING THAT OVER A QUARTER OF THOSE WHO ARE CARING FOR A LOVED-ONE SAY THAT THEIR LIFE HAS CHANGED SINCE BECOMING A CAREGIVER--WITH ROUGHLY ONE-IN-FIVE SAYING THAT SOME ASPECT OF THEIR LIFE HAS "GOTTEN WORSE".  MICHAEL FESTA [AS IN "FESTIVE" AND "FRESCA"] IS WITH "A-A-R-P MASSACHUSETTS"...

(FESTA):
"
AT SOME POINT IN 2009, MORE THAN ONE-MILLION 'BAY STATE'-RESIDENTS FOUND THEMSELVES SERVING AS CAREGIVERS.  FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND NEIGHBORS WHO SUPPORT A LOVED-ONE RARELY SEE THEMSELVES AS A CAREGIVER.  AND, THEY ALMOST NEVER ASK FOR HELP.  BUT, AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES, MOST PEOPLE WILL BE A CAREGIVER--OR WILL NEED SUPPORT.  WE WANT TO REMIND CAREGIVERS THAT THEY AREN'T ALONE--AND THAT THERE IS HELP:  WE'VE ADDED NEW RESOURCES TO OUR ONLINE 'CAREGIVING RESOURCE CENTER'.  AND, THROUGH OUR NEW 'THANKS PROJECT', WE URGE ALL AMERICANS TO TAKE A MOMENT TO THANK OUR NATION'S CAREGIVERS."
