The New Faces of Caregiving

Taking care of an elderly parent, though increasingly common these days as Baby Boomers age, isn't the only form of caregiving. If you care for a child with a disability, a sick sibling or an injured veteran, you're a caregiver. And you're certainly not alone. There are more than 67.5 million American adults who are caring for someone who is ill, disabled or aging—that's 29% of the adult population—according to the National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP.

We want to break through stale perceptions of what a caregiver is and show you the many faces of caregiving in today's world.

Delve into our resources—like organizational apps for caregivers—plus heartfelt stories and blog posts below. Let us know what you think on Facebook.com/EasterSeals or our blog. Plus download our new caregiving study.
