Spouses, family members, friends, neighbors…so many kind-hearted, dedicated people provide unpaid care all year, in order to assist a loved one with daily activities, and even medical tasks.
In fact, 65.7 million ‘informal’ caregivers (29 percent of the U.S. adult population) provide care to someone who is ill, disabled or aged, for an average of 20.4 hours per week, according to the Family Caregiver Alliance.
An estimated 66 percent of caregivers are women, with an average age of 48, who fill the caregiver role for around 4.6 years.
