A nationwide survey by Easter Seals of 351 people who care for adult siblings with developmental disabilities offer a snapshot into the issues they face when serving as a caregiver. Many of the siblings said they were unprepared for the responsibility, while 30% said they receive no support from others. However, 80% of respondents reported a close bond with the sibling with disabilities, and half said the sibling had a positive effect on their lives.
