Valuing the invaluable: 2015 update


Family caregivers in the U.S. provided 37 billion hours of care—worth — an estimated $470 billion—to their parents, spouses, partners, and other adult loved ones in 2013, according this report. The total estimated economic value of this uncompensated care provided by the nation’s family caregivers surpassed total Medicaid spending, and nearly equaled the annual sales of the four largest U.S. tech companies combined.
