The National Alliance for Caregiving is the leader in research around family caregiving issues. NAC recognizes that the 65.7 million family caregivers in the U.S. – 29% of the U.S. adult population – provide important societal and financial contributions toward maintaining the well-being of those they care for. Through national surveys, NAC identifies important new trends and sheds light on the varying needs of this huge and diverse group.
Research conducted by NAC highlights specific areas of interest to family caregivers, professional associations, disease-specific organizations, government agencies and corporations. Original research conducted by the Alliance includes studies that examine the working caregiving, Hispanic caregivers, caregivers of veterans, gender and caregiving, children as caregivers, efficacy of interventions, the impact of caregiving on caregiver’s health, the caregiver cost study, and out-of-pocket costs for family caregivers.
