family caregivers

Wisconsin is the seventh best state in the U.S. for family caregivers, according to a report released Dec. 12 by senior care website

With an estimated 34 million Americans taking on the role of unpaid caregiver to an aging loved one, the website also released a list of the best and worst states in the U.S. for family caregivers of older adults.

View the full report here, and the list of the 10 Best States for Family Caregivers here.

To gather this list, the website weighed proprietary data on the availability of highly rated senior care options in each state. It also compared state-by-state rankings on caregiver supports from the Long-Term Services Scorecard, a joint report released earlier this year by the AARP, The Commonwealth Fund, and the SCAN Foundation.
