Caregiving

18.2% of the U.S. population provided unpaid care to an adult or child in the prior 12 months (National Alliance for Caregiving/AARP 2015). Caring for an older adult with a chronic condition or a child with special health and behavioral needs can be physically, emotionally, and financially draining. Programs help empower family caregivers to take better care of themselves.
