Family Caregiving is NOT Cheaper Than Professional Care. Here’s Why!

August 31, 2017
 

Family caregivers lovingly offer their help free of charge, contributing their time, energy, and often their own well-being, and what they do and the sacrifices that they make truly make them heroes. Currently, nearly 10 million people over the age of 50 are caring for their aging parents, according to a study conducted by the MetLife Mature Market Institute, in conjunction with the National Alliance for Caregiving and the New York Medical College. The number of caregivers has more than tripled over the past 15 years.
