Abstract

A survey of families with children with special needs found that a large majority (82%) of caregivers are concerned that they do not have enough financial resources to last their disabled relative's entire lifetime. Just as alarming, because of the time and cost required for caring for those with special needs, 30% of caregivers are not saving at all for their own retirement.
