Caregiver Burnout

Unpaid caregivers provide critical support to family members, friends, or neighbors who are in need of care due to illness, disability, or age- related challenges. Despite their incredible dedication, their struggles and sacrifices deserve recognition.

According to recent studies

Over 53 million people in the United States alone serve as unpaid caregivers, contributing an estimated $470 billion worth of care annually.

On average, caregivers spend 24.4 hours per week providing care, and 1 in 4 caregivers devote over 40 hours each week to caregiving responsibilities.

Caregiving can have significant financial implications, with caregivers spending an average of $7,000 per year on
caregiving-related expenses.

Only 47% say they have received adequate training

20-40% of caregivers battle depression.
