Caregivers play a key role in the lives of older adults. Caregivers include spouses, adult children, other relatives, friends, and neighbors. Nearly one in five adults in the US are providing unpaid care to an adult with health or functional needs.
AAAs can help with information, training, and support for caregivers, as well as respite for caregivers.
