Caregivers are critically important to the health of our nation’s elderly, and we are proud to take part in recognizing their exceptional contributions in providing the highest quality of care. With Impact80 Summit, caregivers & parents will become more empowered to take care of themselves, become a more active health care partner and perhaps balancing a family, and trying to gain the experience they desire to succeed in today’s world.

“We wanted to use technology to helps & reach caregivers, patients, parents, working moms isolated by circumstance or geography to access expertise and feel connected to others,” Dr Erowele, Director of Impact80 Summit. “It’s absolutely essential that people feel they are not alone in their caregiving journey while juggling care and work like many working parents. To access these sessions, people simply need to register free of charge via Impact80summit.com website.”

Facts:

  • By 2030, the over-65 population will nearly triple, dramatically impacting the health care system in the United States. Now, more than ever, caregivers represent critical members of the healthcare & long term care team.
  • By definition, a caregiver is an unpaid family member, friend, or neighbor who provides care to an individual who has an acute or chronic condition and needs assistance at home with managing a variety of tasks and complex care.
  • According to the AARP, about 62.1 million family caregivers in the United States provided care to an adult with limitations in daily activities at any given point in time. The monetary value of their unpaid contributions was about more than $450 billion.
  • An aging population means a growing number of people with chronic conditions to manage and lack of support and resource is often the reality for them.
