Over 40 million Americans serve as unpaid caregivers, mostly for parents and grandparents. While unpaid caregiving is nothing new, the need spans generations. Nearly one quarter of today’s caregivers are from the Millennial generation (early 20’s to mid-30’s) and they are struggling with the costs of balancing care for aging loved ones with care for newborns or young children.

On July 18, join BPC’s Paid Family Leave and Health team as we explore the financial challenges faced by these dual caregivers, and how policies like paid family leave and healthcare reforms could better support them.
