You probably know someone just like her. Today’s family caregiver is a 49-year-old woman who juggles her career, her kids, and her household. She also provides nearly 20 hours a week of unpaid care to her parents for almost five years.
According to a recent AARP report, family members in the United States are providing $450 billion worth of unpaid care services every year. The emotional and financial stress of providing this care puts a strain on the caregiver’s own health and wellness.
And the future promises no sign of relief. As more people are living well into their 90s, the U.S. Census results show that the “oldest old” are the fastest growing segment of the population.
The solution? PLAN AHEAD so that you have the essential support when you need it. Long-term care insurance can be very expensive, hard to acquire for people 65+ and it can be difficult to trigger the coverage that traditional policies provide. Instead, we suggest investigating alternative options.
