  • Aging Life Care Professionals® Help Reduce Stress for Caregiving Families

    JUNE 03, 2019

    Aging Life Care Association® Press Release
    As Americans grow older, many of them will require additional aid with their day to day tasks—dressing, preparing food, taking a shower. For many families, those tasks fall to the “unpaid caregivers”—adult children, grandchildren, and other relatives assisting older adults as they age. The number of unpaid caregivers is growing—up to 43 million at the most recent survey in 2017. This number is expected to spike as the Baby Boomer generation grows older.
