The statistics around caregiving are daunting … an estimated 120 million adult Americans (57 percent) are either providing unpaid care to an adult family member or friend or have provided this care in the past.

About 22 percent of the population -- approximately 46 million Americans -- is providing care to an adult relative or friend. And more than 138 million Americans -- believe they will need to provide care to someone in the future.

This edition of the Bioethics Channel features Sandy Silva of the Center for Practical Bioethics and Lyn Polk of the American Red Cross discussing caregiving issues on Health Talk on KMBZ Radio in Kansas City.
