As the population of older Americans rises, so does the number of needed caregivers. The number of people 65 years old and older is expected to rise by 101% between 2000 and 2030, however, over that same period of time the number of family members who are able to provide care for these older adults is expected to increase by only 25%.
Caregiving exacts a tremendous toll on caregivers’ health and well-being, and accounts for significant costs to families and society. Tideswell supports research, training and educational initiatives to help address the burden of caregivers.
