Improving Support Systems for Family Caregivers of Individuals with Cognitive Impairments

Family caregivers of individuals with cognitive impairments experience significant challenges, with 59.5% being female, averaging 57 years in age, and often having multiple comorbidities (average of 2). They face greater needs for ongoing living assistance, with a statistically significant greater likelihood of requiring such care compared to non-caregivers. This highlights the emotional and logistical strains these caregivers endure, demonstrating a critical need for targeted support and accessible services to alleviate their burden and improve their quality of life.
