$450 billion (estimated) of unpaid care is given to aging relatives and friends

Overview

In 2009, 42.1 million caregivers in the United States provided an estimated $450 billion worth of unpaid care to aging relatives and friends. Almost three in ten people who are caring for someone say their life has changed with caregiving, oftentimes for the negative. More than one in five say their weight, exercise habits, or social life have suffered. Emotionally, one in five say they are generally unhappier and one in three say they feel sad or depressed.
