Abstract

In 2010, 5.5 million US adults ages seventy and older received informal care, including 3.6 million with cognitive impairment or probable dementia. Adults with probable dementia received 171 hours of monthly informal care, versus 89 and 66 hours for cognitively impaired without dementia and cognitively normal adults, respectively.
