#Overworked... Caregivers in NYS Average 50 Years Old, They Work for 35 Hours, Then Provide Care for

We know from the Caregiving in the U.S. 2015 study that over 34 million American’s provided unpaid care to a loved one over the age of 55 years old last year. However, there is one question that overlooked; Who are the caregivers and why does it matter who they are?

Emily Gurnon of Next Avenue’s Health & Caregiving division writes a great article to explain this - http://www.nextavenue.org/who-americas-caregivers-are-and-why-it-matters/ .

Caregiver Statistics:

  • 49-year-old women

  • Caring for 69-year-old female relative

  • Likely caring for a mother

  • Currently working at least 35 hours a week

  • Providing care for 24 hours a week

“Three in ten caregivers said that being paid for some of their caregiving and income tax credit would be most helpful”
