A news release from the mall says more than a dozen organizations will be there for a resource fair. BlueCross Blue Shield, AARP, the Wilder Foundation, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and National Brain Alliance are just a few of those organizations.

The Mall of America says guests will also have the opportunity to participate in activities to help raise awareness. Those activities include musical performances and meeting with therapy dogs.

One in six people who are 18 years old or older regularly assist someone with a health problem, long-term illness or disability, the mall says.

On average, those who provide care to adults have been doing so for four years, according to a report put out by the National Alliance for Caregiving.
