85% of all care for individuals with chronic disorders occurs in the home. This includes care for the elderly, for those with dementia, and for people of all ages who have other chronic disorders occurs. Today, with little education about caregiving and little support, no fewer than 50 to 60 million Unpaid Family Caregivers (UFCs) care for their loved ones. 15 million of those UFCs care for the 7 to 9 million present victims of Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementia’s (ADRD). In the next 15 to 20 years, an aging boomer generation of 40 million will add a minimum of 4 to 7 million ADRD victims and untold UFCs.
