  • About 20% of US adults are caregivers who provide informal or unpaid care or assistance to a family member or friend who has a health condition or disability.
  • Caregiving can be rewarding but also emotionally and physically demanding; in a CDC survey, nearly a fifth of caregivers reported being physically or mentally unhealthy 14 or more days in the previous month.
  • Communities can promote caregiver health and wellbeing by offering support programs and encouraging respite, a short break away from caregiving.
