Policies for Those Who Care: Investing in Systems That Support Family Caregivers

The George Washington University, Washington, DC

March 21, 2019
Registration Closing Date: 03/01/2019

Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging

Across the country, more than 35 million family members are providing care for older adults with chronic, disabling health conditions. While many organizations are working hard to provide services and supports, federal, state, and local policies do not yet reflect the fact that family caregivers are an important part of the care system.

During this meeting, funders learned about the current state of family caregiving policy and efforts to create new and innovative policies across the country. Funders discussed collaborative policy opportunities—including public-private partnerships—for improving services and support for family caregivers and will explore the role of philanthropy in supporting policy change, as well as the strategies available to grantmakers of all shapes and sizes to make a difference at the local, regional, and state levels.

Support for this meeting was provided by Archstone Foundation
