Global Scream: Caregiver's Unite II More info

Anyone know how to post on the Association of Family Caregivers ??? I have there website but I think my brains are scrambled today. Here is their website: caregiver.org

There are other caregiver associations but I'm having the same problems about how to contact in these complex websites. \

Global Scream: Caregiver's Unite Saturday 15th, 3:00 England time: Pass it on.

Some Statistics:

USA:

65.7 million caregivers make up 29% of the U.S. adult population providing care to someone who is ill, disabled or aged.

[The National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP (2009), Caregiving in the U.S. National Alliance for Caregiving. Washington, DC.]

Caregiver services were valued at $450 billion per year in 2009- up from $375 billion in year 2007.

[Valuing the Invaluable: 2011 Update, The Economic Value of Family Caregiving. AARP Public Policy Institute.] -

The value of unpaid family caregivers will likely continue to be the largest source of long-term care services in the U.S., and the aging population 65+ will more than double between the years 2000 and 2030, increasing to 71.5 million from 35.1 million in 2000.

Many caregivers of older people are themselves growing older. Of those caring for someone aged 65+, the average age is 63 years with one third of these caregivers in fair to poor health.

Worldwide, 35.6 million people have dementia and there are 7.7 million new cases every year.
