    Sisters Liz and Deborah discuss how they used this agreement to care for their late mother.

    Forty-one percent of the [71 million] baby boomers who have a living parent are helping care for them — with personal aid, financial help or both — according to a USA TODAY/ABC News/Gallup Poll

    (T)he prevalence of caregiving has risen from 16.6 percent in 2015 to 19.2 percent in 2020—an increase of over 8 million adults ... primarily driven by a significant increase in the prevalence of caring for a family member ...  age 50 or older.

    The National Alliance for Caregiving (NAC) and AARP are proud to present Caregiving in the U.S. 2020.
