Caregiving

Caregiving

In the United States, 43 million adult family caregivers care for someone older than age 50, and 14.9 million care for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. The last updated value of that caregiving was $450 billion per year, and it only stands to grow. These caregivers need our help, and ASA supplies the information and resources they need. What are the latest models for preventing cognitive decline? How much will long-term care cost and what are the other options? How does palliative care work versus hospice? Are there intergenerational programs that can enrich the lives of those with dementia? Find the answers here.
