The National Center on Caregiving at Family Caregiver Alliance (FCA) has published new and updated data in its online resource, Caregiving Across the States.

You'll find the updated data in the Selected State Background
Characteristics sections of the State Profiles. NEW state-by-state data
include:

* Average Daily Cost for Adult Day Services
* Average Hourly Costs for Home Health Care
* Average Hourly Costs for Personal/ Home Care

In addition, key updates for each state include:

* Number of Family Caregivers and Total Caregiving Hours
* Economic Value of Caregiving
* Average Daily Cost in a Nursing Home
* Average Monthly Cost for Assisted Living
* Number of Home Health Aides in the Workforce
* Median Hourly Wages for Nursing Assistants, Home Health Aides and Personal/Home Care Aides

This interactive database, accessible in map format on the FCA website, is a valuable resource to inform state administrators and policymakers about support programs for family caregivers of adults with chronic illnesses or disabilities. It also allows caregivers and service providers to access information they need to seek assistance and benefits for themselves or their clients.
