Caregiver as a 49-year-old woman who on top of her regular job provides almost 20 hours a week of unpaid care to her mom for pretty much five years. An AARP report found family members give a staggering $450 billion worthy of of unpaid care annually – and other analysis makes very clear that the strain and the time involved can take a toll on the caregivers’ own health and funds as they put off their own doctor appointments, dip into their savings and scale back their working hours. Adding to the task is that more and more people are living well into their 90s, as Census statistics show the oldest-old are the fastest growing segment of the population.
