An estimated 34 million Americans provide unpaid care to an older family member. A new Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) infographic and fact sheet describe the vital role of family caregivers in the U.S. health care workforce and economy, and outline how states can enact policies to increase support for family caregivers.
The resources are products of CHCS’s Helping States Support Families Caring for an Aging America initiative, which is supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation, the Milbank Memorial Fund, the May & Stanley Smith Charitable Trust, and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. As part of this initiative, CHCS is working with six states committed to developing policies or programs to support family caregivers and address the challenges of an aging population.
