“More than 27 million family caregivers in America provide more that 20 hours of care each week. Family caregivers in the United States provide an estimated 257 billion in unpaid services annually—more than twice what is spent on nursing homes and paid home care combined”.

When it comes time to place a loved one in long term care, many family caregivers have no idea what to do or where to turn.
