Family, friends struggle to provide personal care

Caregiver assisting a member

Millions of Americans need help with everyday activities, and many others have loved ones who need assistance. Providing personal care is an ongoing struggle, and 18% of adults say they or a family member need new or additional support beyond what they have.

Personal care services are designed for those who need ongoing support for daily activities, to help them remain self-sufficient and live independently. While many may receive this from a paid nurse or aide, some rely on family and friends to have their needs met. This can be challenging for those who must work and provide care simultaneously.
