Capacity to Care Caregiver Awareness Campaign

Approximately 43.5 million Americans provide part or full-time care for another adult age 50 or over. Almost half (46%) of family caregivers perform medical/nursing tasks – the majority of these caregivers (53%) also act as care coordinators.

More than 500,000 Minnesotans provide care for a family member, friend or neighbor. Less than 19% of these people identify as a caregiver. Source: 2005 Survey of Older Minnesotans; 2001 AARP Caregiver Identification Study
