1.3 million Spend their Youth Caring for Adults

Young people are caring for parents or grandparents, many of whom  have serious illnesses like cancer, dementia, neurological disorders and mental illness. The impact on these youth is significant- affecting their school performance, grades, and health. This trend disproportionately affects lower income families which means they most likely can’t afford to hire private caregivers and rely on their children and grandchildren to provide care.

Barely noticed, 1.3 million spend their youth caring for adults.
