State Support Needed For Family Caregivers

Approximately 18 million family members in the United States provide care to older individuals who need assistance. Many states are not fully prepared to meet the needs of older adults, despite being the primary funders of long-term services and supports. While there’s no common system for sharing best practices in caregiving policy, five states have come together to learn from each other through an initiative by the John A. Hartford Foundation.
