How many Americans are caregivers?

Hard to say.  The numbers are not counted consistently, nor do some surveys identify those in relationships with alcoholics and addicts as caregivers. In addition, those caring for someone with a mental illness are not always counted.

While many impairments overlap, below are hard numbers.

  1. There are 40.4 million unpaid caregivers of adults ages 65 and older in the United States. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nov 18, 2015
    • According to estimates from the National Alliance for Caregiving, during the past year, 65.7 million Americans (or 29 percent of the adult U.S. adult population involving 31 percent of all U.S. households) served as family caregivers for an ill or disabled relative.
  2. In the United States, nearly 14 million adults, or every one in 13 adults, abuse alcohol or have an alcoholism problem. (projectknow.com)
  3. Nearly 21 million Americans struggle with substance addictions  USA Today 11/2016
  4. Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. (46.6 million) experiences mental illness in a given year. NAMI.org *Natl. Alliance on Mental Illness

Gracie, with undaunted courage, lives everyday where only our deepest fears takes us—and that is, a world of unrelenting pain.  To spend time with her, though, is to feel a lot of that courage infuse into your own heart.  You can’t help but sense the divine strength which is her daily comfort and consolation.

Gracie’s journey to a healthier life

As in the case with Gracie, she needed a team of committed individuals to help her in this journey. Her trauma was too extensive to manage this alone. None of us need to try this by ourselves. That’s why we are committed to helping you achieve a healthier life. Others did it for us, we did it for Gracie, and we’re prepared to assist you as well.

Legal Shield

As a caregiver, think about all the legal documents you need.  Power of attorney, a will, Living Wills, and so many more. Then think about such things as disputes about medical bills.

What if instead of shelling out hefty fees for a few days of legal help, you paid a monthly membership and got a law firm for life? Well, we’re taking legal representation and making some revisions—in the form of accessible, affordable, full-service coverage. Finally, you can live life knowing you have a lawyer in your back pocket who, at the same time, isn’t emptying it.

It’s called Legal shield …and it’s practical, affordable, and a MUST for family caregivers.
