Caregivers



Fact: Caregivers provide 80 percent of all long-term care in New York State, saving the state $32 billion in health care spending annually (Valuing the Invaluable: 2011 Update - The Growing Contributions and Costs of Family Caregiving, AARP, page 27, Table B1). Area Agencies provide support for those caregivers.
