Drawing from Caregiving in the U.S. 2015, learn about the "new normal" of caregiving, which includes millennials, those ages 75 and older, and higher hour caregivers. This webinar explored the foundation of caregiving in the United States, insights on national and state trends, and public policy efforts aimed at supporting family caregivers. These efforts include the CARE Act, the RAISE Act, the bipartisan Assisting Caregivers Today (ACT) Caucus, and other legislative/public policy efforts focused on supporting family caregivers. AARP Public Policy Institute's newest initiative, the Home Alone Alliance, was also discussed. Discover opportunities in which philanthropy and others can support the well-being of older adults and their caregivers. Speakers included: Laura Rath of Archstone Foundation, Susan C. Reinhard of AARP Public Policy Institute, and John Feather of Grantmakers In Aging.
