Family caregivers in the U.S. provided 374billion hours of care—worth an estimated $470 billion—to their parents, spouses, partners, and other adult loved ones in 2013, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute’s new report, Valuing the Invaluable: 2019 Update, Undeniable Progress but big Gaps Remain. The report updates national and state estimates of the economic value of family caregiving
using the most current data available. It also explains the challenges that family caregivers face today, highlights key policy developments for family caregivers since the last Valuing the Invaluable report was released in 2019, and provides recommendations to better support caregiving families.
