Caregivers

Posted:

One in three U.S. adults is taking care of someone who is elderly, sick or has special needs.

That's part of a new report from the National Alliance for Caregiving.

It finds women carry the bulk of caregiving responsibilities -- many while running households and working outside the home, as well.

On average, caregivers spend about 20-hours a week taking care of someone else.

The report is based on interviews with about 15-hundred people.
