Without informal caregivers our healthcare system would collapse

Informal caregivers are volunteers working without compensation to care for a family member or friend.

  • 1 in 5 Americans are caregivers at this very moment
  • 1 in 3 Americans will provide care this year
  • 80% of all care in America is provided by informal caregivers
  • Informal caregivers provide $375 billion in unpaid services each year

Caregiver Crisis

If you live a normal lifespan, you will either be, or dependent upon, an informal caregiver.

When that time comes, you will discover that:

  • You will labor in isolation, exhausting yourself reinventing what others already know
  • There is no organized caregiver support structure and few places to turn for help
  • The financial impact can be devastating
  • The emotional impact can be overwhelming
  • There is no training manual
  • Informal caregivers are invisible within our healthcare system
