America faces a caregiving crisis. Whether it’s caring for an aging parent, a sick spouse or a child, more than 50 million Americans are unpaid caregivers for family members and loved ones. Tens of millions of those caregivers are also balancing work with caregiving responsibilities. And while caregiving is a rewarding experience, recent data show that 71% of family caregivers with full-time jobs suffer from mental health challenges and more than half of caregivers say they are too burned out to do their job well. It’s no wonder so many family caregivers are thinking about leaving their jobs.
