As baby boomers age, they are faced with both the prospect of caring for aging parents and the possibility that they will be those needing care. The Family Caregiver Alliance estimates that the number of unpaid family caregivers will reach 37 million by 2050, an 85% increase from the year 2000. Family caregivers, as well as those who may be subject to such care, can reduce some of the burdens and complexities of these arrangements by taking advantage of available legal tools and professional advisers.
