Managing the Caregiving Landscape: Challenges and Prospects for Employers

Download eBook

    In the United States today, around 40 million adults, constituting over 16% of the population, are informally engaged in providing care for their relatives. This increasing trend of caregiving responsibilities among family and friends is driven by demographic shifts such as longer life expectancy and a growing elderly population. The aging population, coupled with rising healthcare costs and shorter hospital stays, has led to a diverse range of care-related tasks being taken on by individuals close to those in need, including family members, spouses, parents, neighbors, and friends.

    Despite the expanding roles and responsibilities, many caregivers do not identify themselves as such. They often perceive caregiving as a natural obligation and do not openly discuss their experiences due to concerns about potential negative effects on their careers.

    Consequently, caregivers not only grapple with the challenges of balancing caregiving with other responsibilities but also often experience feelings of isolation and loneliness. These emotional states are linked to increased health risks, including a higher likelihood of coronary heart disease and stroke.
