According to the Alzheimer’s Association, in 2018, 16.3 million family members and friends provided 18.5 billion hours of unpaid care to individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias. Of this group, 86% provided care for at least the past year, but half have provided care for four or more years. In addition to family caregivers, there is an increasing need for professional caregivers for individuals who have Alzheimer’s and dementia. Caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s is intrusive as well as physically and emotionally demanding. Almost 80% of older adults with dementia need assistance with necessary personal care activities such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and eating.
