Informal caregivers are those unpaid persons such as family members, friends, and neighbors who provide assistance to someone who is to some degree incapacitated and in need of help with tasks such as grocery shopping, bill paying, cooking, or personalm care. Grandparents or other relatives raising grandchildren are those who have accepted primary responsibility for raising one or more children through age 18.
