The largest volunteer health care workforce in our country are the nation’s 65 million caregivers. They carry the physical, emotional and financial responsibilities on their shoulders. This month we celebrate all of our nation’s caregivers.
In November we want everyone to remember the 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and the 15 million caring for them. Every 68 seconds, someone new is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. One of every two Americans over age 85 will develop dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is the #1 reason children under 18 become a caregiver for a grandparent or parent.
