Abstract

The historical and current contexts of caregiving in later life in the United States are briefly discussed. A short description of the types of health problems typical in the elderly and affecting their need for care is included. This section also describes the occurrence of needing or giving care currently and future predictions of its prevalence. The factors that affect provision of care and the consequences of furnishing that assistance are also briefly reviewed.
