The task of providing long term care can be daunting for anyone. A recent Washington Post article stated, "In 2009, about 42.1 million family caregivers provided assistance to adults with limitations in daily activities, such as going to the bathroom, preparing meals or making it to a doctor's appointment. The AARP report estimates the economic value of family caregiving that year at $450 billion, based on those 42.1 million caregivers ages 18 or older who provide about 18.4 hours of care per week at an average value of $11.16 per hour."
 
"Just imagine if much of this voluntary care were gone."
"Historically, providing care to the elderly wasn't such a dire public-policy issue. People didn't live as long as they do now. But what happens when the need for long-term care goes on for years or decades?"
"The long-term care needs of many of our elderly are straining families, just as family structures have changed and during one of the worst economies in decades. There are more women in the workforce, making it harder for them to provide care. Almost two-thirds of family caregivers are female. More than eight in 10 care for a relative or friend who is 50 or older." Read the entire article.
