About caregivers/caregiving

  • Every year at least 53 million people provide informal – and usually unpaid – care and support to aging family members and people of all ages with disabilities. Read the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers to learn more: ACL.gov/CaregiverStrategy #Caregiving
  • Nearly 3 million grandparents – and an unknown number of other kinship caregivers – care for children whose parents were unable to do so. Learn more here: ACL.gov/CaregiverStrategy #Caregiving #Kinshipfamilies #Grandfamilies
  • #Caregiving is about the relationship between the person who's caring for somebody and the person who's receiving that care. It often carries with it physical, financial, and emotional consequences – and the pandemic has only magnified these challenges. ACL.gov/CaregiverStrategy
  • While family #caregiving is rewarding, it can also be challenging. When caregivers do not have the support they need, their health, well-being, and quality of life can suffer. Lost income due to family caregiving is estimated at $522 billion each year. ACL.gov/CaregiverStrategy
  • Millions of older adults and people with disabilities would not be able to live in their communities without essential family #caregiving support and replacing it with paid services would cost an estimated $470 billion per year. Read more: ACL.gov/CaregiverStrategy
