Who comes to mind when you think of a caregiver? Perhaps you imagine a nurse or doctor, treating an elderly patient at an assisted living facility, or maybe you think of a family member dedicating countless hours to helping their child with special needs.
Caregiving is a broad term that encompasses both paid professionals (such as doctors and nurses) as well as informal, or unpaid individual caretakers. Their responsibilities range from attending doctor’s appointments, administering medication, managing financial and legal affairs, providing emotional support, and much more.
In 2015, an estimated 43.5 million Americans reported providing unpaid care to a child or an adult in the last 12 months. These unpaid caregivers generated almost $470 billion of economic value (that’s nearly equivalent to Walmart’s total annual sales!). During the pandemic, the demand for caregiving soared alongside the stressors and threat of Covid-19 .
