- One in 4 US baby boomers is a caregiver to a family member or friend with a health problem or disability.
- Baby boomer caregivers more commonly report frequent mental distress and more chronic health conditions than non-caregivers, which can compromise their ability to provide care.
- Public health professionals can support caregivers by promoting resources such as how to make a care plan, caregiver infographics, and self-care for caregivers.
