20 Million Family Caregivers Performing Complex Medical/Nursing Tasks with Little Instruction, Finds New AARP Report
Half of the nation’s 40 million family caregivers are performing complicated medical/nursing tasks for their family members and friends, including giving injections, preparing special diets, managing tube feedings, and handling medical equipment, according to a new Home Alone Revisited report. In addition, 70 percent of these caregivers are dealing with the stress of managing pain relief in the midst of a national opioid crisis.
We know it takes time to build great communities. But, we also believe that quick action can spark longer-term progress. AARP launched the AARP Community Challenge to fund projects that build momentum for change in communities to improve livability for all local residents.
Northeast Business Group on Health (NEBGH) and AARP launches “ Digital Tools and Solutions for Caregivers: An Employer’s Guide” to help HR and benefits leaders support employees who are family caregivers.
