Start Seeing Caregivers

June 13, 2018




Caregiving provided by relatives and friends is the very heart of eldercare. When older adults need assistance with essential everyday life tasks, these caregivers are the predominant providers. Caregivers are the primary source of social and emotional support, and are deeply engaged in their care receivers’ medical care. Caregivers are also often part of the paid workforce and have additional family and community obligations. The prevalence and complexity of caregiving has significant implications for our workplaces, healthcare systems, and communities, and yet caregivers remain under-recognized. By seeing caregivers, we will be compelled to take action to preserve and sustain their contributions to the well-being of an aging society.
