Supplementary notes

Definition: "By caregiving, we mean situations when you are responsible for providing care – or the resources for that care – to someone or several people over a substantial period of time. The caregiving could be for anyone in your life who is –or could be – aging, ill or have special needs, but does not include any caregiving you may do as part of your employment."

Original question: "Are you currently, or have you ever been a caregiver?"
