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.
