80 MILLION PEOPLE will be 65+ by 2050. 52.3% are expected to need long-term care during their lifetimes.

65% of seniors who need long-term care rely exclusively on family and friends, causing family caregivers to experience anxiety and depression. This stress can shave as much as 10 YEARS off the family caregiver's life.1

MY CAREGIVING STORY MAY SOUND FAMILIAR

I thought I had it all under control. As the owner of both a speaking and a marketing business, as well as being a married mom of twins, I was confident I could juggle a lot without dropping too many balls. Then, my mom in Brooklyn had a series of falls. The last one led to a hospital stay and two months in rehab.

My sister and I knew our fiercely independent mother needed more help. Through heartache and tough decisions, we came up with a plan that -- even to this day -- often changes from week to week. Now 86, my mom remains at home with the assistance of a compassionate daytime aide.

At least once a quarter, I visit for several weeks at a time—coordinating doctor appointments and medicine, overseeing home maintenance projects, and making sure the bills are paid. Most importantly, I gain special time with my mom—enjoying neighborhood walks and competitive games of Rummikub.

I wish I had experienced this Seasons of Care program when we began this journey and am grateful for the opportunity to help make it easier for you.

NAVIGATING FAMILY DYNAMICS

STARTING THE CONVERSATION

In the two years we spent developing our expertise, many people generously and courageously shared what they learned caring for their loved ones. We share their advice and hope their wisdom will make your own season of caregiving a bit easier.

We created Seasons of Care: Caregiving for Elders in Your Family, a new workshop dedicated to helping caregivers and those who want to plan ahead. The workshop is free, open to the public, and we encourage you to bring family and friends.

Talking about death and dying is taboo in our society, so we avoid the conversation until the inevitable occurs. Our failure to plan often forces families to make life-or-death decisions about their loved one's care, and sadly some options are no longer available.

Caregiving is one of the most important issues our society isn't talking about. We want to change that, and help you make your own season of care as meaningful and as joyful as possible.

THE SACRIFICE

THE EFFECTS

THE DISTRESS

THE PROBLEM

The scope of the problem is huge. There are 44 million unpaid family caregivers in the U.S. That means roughly 1 in 5 adults are currently caring for a loved one or someday will be. Yet there's little help or support for those taking on this stressful job. 

Caregivers suffer emotional and mental distress. Woefully unprepared for their role and with little to no support, one third of caregivers continue to care for others even while suffering health problems themselves.

The effects of family caregiving can harm your health and cut years off your life. Caregivers who care for their spouses and report caregiving strain are 63% more likely to die within 4 years than non-caregivers, and 40% of Alzheimer's caregivers die first from stress-related disorders. 

Caring for a loved one can have significant financial consequences. Caregivers sacrifice an average of $566,443 in lifetimes wages and benefits. On top of that, caregivers typically spend 20% of their own income caring for a loved one.
