The report, focusing on family caregivers of adults, reveals that family caregivers are in worse health compared to five years ago, and that personal finances are a concern: 28 percent of family caregivers have stopped saving, 23 percent have taken on more debt. The 2020 study builds on prior efforts (in 1997, 2004, 2009, and 2015) and replicates the new methodology implemented in 2015, allowing for examination of changes to caregiving since the last data collection effort in 2015.
