Unpaid family care is costing loved ones billions

Family Home CareAre you losing income because of reduced work hours to care for a loved one? Have you used all your sick days to help out? Well, you’re not alone.

A recent report by Reuters estimates that wages lost in the Unites States for unpaid family care will reach $147 billion by 2050. The article notes the current economic cost for unpaid family care is $64 billion.  If you’re taking on the role of primary caregiver for a family member, you could be losing thousands of dollars a year in lost wages alone.
