Everybody knows someone who is taking care of a family member. In fact, half of us are or will be among the more than 40 million family caregivers in the country who devote an average of 20 hours a week to caring for a chronically ill or disabled adult. Paradoxically, the health of a caregiver – particularly those who have dual responsibilities as employees and caregivers – often deteriorates due to the stress of juggling both work and continuous care giving. As a result, productivity on the job goes down almost 20% and personal health care benefit costs go up an average of 8% a year, approximately $550 for each caregiver. The care recipient is also greatly impacted as their caregiving requirements are often not met which in turn frequently results on unnecessary readmissions. The family caregiver dilemma is a looming national crisis of providing care for an aging population.
