The caregiver has become an important role in the modern family dynamic. A 2009 survey found that 65.7 million people in the U.S., or 28.5 percent of the population, serve as unpaid caregivers for an adult family member, a child with special needs or a friend (Emblem Health).
Caregivers often face multiple responsibilities and complex demands on their time, energy and efforts. Many caregivers work full time outside the home and care for spouses and children as well as frail or ill family members. As a result, caregiving can take a significant physical and psychological toll.
