The vast majority of caregiving for the elderly is not provided in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or even adult day care programs. Most seniors are able to receive care at home, allowing them to remain in their community. And of those who can stay home, the overwhelming majority are cared for not by professional home health aides, but by family. A new survey from the National Family Caregivers Association (NFCA) shows that the number of persons who provided care for an elderly, disabled or chronically ill relative during the past year is more than twice as large as had been previously thought. Survey results indicate 26.6 percent of the adult population was involved in caregiving during the past 12 months. Based on current census data, that translates to more than 54 million people. Approximately 80 percent of home care services are provided by family caregivers.[1]
