MEETING A GROWING NEED
Merck is committed to providing excellent medical information, and as part of that effort, Merck provides all of The Merck Manuals on a not-for-profit basis as a service to the community

Today, more Americans can hope to see their parents
live to old age — and more of them have care giving
responsibilities for aging parents, spouses, and other
family members:

  • Adults 50+ represent 79 million people
  • Nearly 1 in 4 households is involved in providing care for adults 50+
  • Over 80% of the care provided to older adults is provided by family care givers
  • Adults 50+ spend over $525 billion on health care, a number expected to reach over $1 trillion by 2007
  • There is a dramatic shortage of healthcare professionals adequately trained to care for the elderly

The Merck Manual of Health & Aging targets the growing need for a useful source of information about the journey ahead.
