A recent study by the American Association for Retired Persons Public Policy Institute has uncovered an alarming trend in the number of family caregivers who will be available to care for aging Baby Boomers. The report is focused on studying the number of potential caregivers between the ages of 45 and 65 for each person 80 or older.
