In 2015, the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP conducted surveys and found that approximately 34.2 million Americans have provided unpaid care to an adult age 50 or older within the previous year. These surveys also found that of these caregivers, 82% cared for one other adult, while 15% care for 2 adults, and 3% care for 3 or more adults! In the same year, according to the Alzheimer’s Association, approximately 15.7 million adult family caregivers were caring for someone who has Alzheimer’s or another form of Dementia.

Full-time caregiving for a family member is a daunting task and can take an emotional and physical toll. If you are a family caregiver, there are resources available to help lessen the burden of caring for your loved one. The Alzheimer’s Association offers many online resources including message boards, a 24/7 Helpline, and support groups. They also offer classes to help caregivers feel more confident and competent in their caregiving skills. For a list of current classes visit their resource page.
