On November 13, join Renew Saddle Rock for a presentation by Nadine Roberts Cornish, Gerontologist and Caregiver Expert. She will talk discuss the new resources available for caregivers of aging family members.
“As boomers increasingly need to care for aging parents—and are aging themselves—they become more prone to developing symptoms of stress and isolation, which we know can be detrimental to one’s health,” said Roberts Cornish. “But the good news is, we have new research and resources to help this rapidly-expanding population of caregivers.”
• Experts predict that the population of aging boomers will double by the year 2030. The U.S. Census Bureau expects that by 2035, senior citizens will outnumber youth for the first time in U.S. history.
• Approximately 43.5 million caregivers have provided unpaid care to an adult or child in the last 12 months. [National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP. (2015). Caregiving in the U.S.]
• The average age of caregivers in the U.S. is 49.2 years old. [National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP. (2015). Caregiving in the U.S.]
• Caregivers report much higher levels of stress than people who are not caregivers, according to women’shealth.gov.
