In Virginia more than 1 million family caregivers provided an estimated 870 million hours of care — worth a staggering $11.2 billion — to their parents, spouses, partners, and friends in 2017, according to state data available in the latest report of AARP’s Valuing the Invaluable series. The complexity of family caregiving increases as medical and nursing tasks continue to enter the home, and family demographics change amidst an aging population.
