The home care industry is proliferating in the US and worldwide. However, there are still tons of problems caregivers have faced. 47% of caregivers have an annual household income of less than $50,000, with a median income of $54,700. African American and Hispanic caregivers are more likely to have a yearly household income below $50k. Women are slightly more likely than men to take care for loved ones. Some divorced women were forced to be caregivers because they needed their parents’ monetary support. Caregivers in a family are very stressful because they have children to take care of and the elderly (parents or sometimes even grandparents) As a result, training for paid or professional caregivers is necessary.
