More than one million New Jerseyans care for older parents, spouses and other loved ones so they can live independently in their homes and communities. These unpaid family caregivers provide one billion hours of care valued at a staggering $13 billion annually, according to AARP. The country recognizes these unsung heroes officially during November, which is National Family Caregivers Month.
Prescription Medication
Did you know the average older American takes four to five prescription medications each month? And the average income for a Medicare beneficiary is about $26,000, but the average annual cost for widely used prescription drugs for chronic conditions was nearly $20,000 in 2017!
