Caregiving in the US, 2009 Study Released

A comprehensive study on caregivers conducted by the National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) in collaboration with AARP and the MetLife Foundation has been released and offers a revealing look at the estimated 65.7 million caregivers in this country.

Among many other notable statistics is that 78 percent of caregivers feel that they need more information or assistance about at least one of 14 specific topics related to caregiving. That percentage grows for caregivers in “high-burden” situations (83 percent).

For more on the study, see NAC’s executive summary, press release, or visit their website. See a brief profile of caregivers below:
