This conference is for caregivers who dedicate their lives to caring for people with Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and other dementias. Caregivers are a diverse group. One size does not fit all. Yet, as different as we are, one aspect unites us: our concern for the quality of care for the people in our charge. Caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia is truly a labor of love. It is estimated that, last year, the nation's almost 15.9 million family caregivers provided 18.1 billion hours of unpaid care to loved ones with Alzheimer's, eliminating an enormous institutional burden. This is a contribution to the nation valued at over $221.3 billion. What would happen to the system if we were no longer able to provide this kind of care to our loved ones? Similarly, professional caregivers - those who work in assisted living facilities, nursing homes and hospitals, adult day services and community-based programs and as private aides assisting families in their homes - bring a special set of skills and expertise, without which the system would suffer.
