We believe that the more you know the better you can care!
There are 40.4 million unpaid caregivers of adults ages 65 and older in the United States according to new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Caregivers may perform a range of activities, such as providing companionship, assisting with housework or providing medical and other forms of physical care.
Among caregivers of older adults, most provide help to one aging adult, but 22% provide help to two and 7% provide help to three or more. Roughly half of these caregivers have been providing help for two years or less. More than a third have been providing care for five or more years.
Most caregivers of older adults provide help to others weekly or less often. One-in-five caregivers say they provide care on a daily basis.
Many are also juggling their own jobs with their caregiving responsibilities. Six-in-ten (61%) caregivers are employed, including nearly half who work full-time.
