This report from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research summarizes results from a survey of adults age 18 and over who have experience in providing long-term care. The survey found that as family and friends take on more of the responsibility of caring for the nation’s growing senior population, their own personal and professional lives often pay the price. This study summarizes the opportunity costs and health impacts on those who devote their time to providing long-term care.
