It’s Personal: The Hidden Toll on Caregivers
Imagine the frustration of constantly forgetting routine activities such as brushing your teeth or taking your medication. This is the reality of people with early-stage memory problems, and the frustrations affect the people who care for them. Memory problems associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia lead to:
- Loss of income for caregivers
- Poor quality of life for loved ones and their caregivers
Caregiving is now a shared responsibility for most North American families. About 15% of employees are in the “sandwich generation,” needing to look after children and elders. Caregivers miss 11 more work days per year compared to people without caregiving duties. This could be you, or someone you know.
You Are not Alone: Demographic Trends in Caregiving
Mild cognitive impairment affects up to 20% of older adults. The problem is growing: Every eight seconds, another Baby Boomer turns 65. One in eight people over 65 has memory problems. More than 10 million North Americans and 44 million people worldwide suffer from dementia—a number expected to hit to 135 million by 2050. Dementia costs $600 billion every year, and this includes the cost of caregiving. It’s a problem crying out for innovative approaches.
