Caregivers need government help or they’ll go broke
USA Today

Family caregivers are the largest caregiver group in the workforce — 65 million Americans who provide unpaid care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member. The value of the services they give free to our society is estimated to be $375 billion a year. That is almost twice as much as the government spends on home care and nursing home services combined ($158 billion).
