What Home Care Looks Like in the 21st Century

The Challenges of Home Care and Caregiving

The Scope of the Issue

  • The number of people in need of care in the U.S. was expected to reach 117 million in 2020 with over 53 million unpaid caregivers, according to research by AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving. The value of the unpaid caregiving market in the US exceeds $470 billion.
  • The prevalence of caregiving has risen from 16.6 percent in 2015 to 19.2 percent in 2020 — an increase of over 8 million adults providing care to a family member or friend.
  • We do not have a formal system of caregiver and home care support in the U.S. Our healthcare focus is on acute care and resources operate in silos. Therefore, caregivers may spend many hours just trying to find the right resources. And, while home care has been proven to save money (and be what people want!), many gaps exist.
