Webinar replay: supporting family caregivers: the changing policy and practice landscape

This webinar was held on June 27, 2024.

Over the past decade, the U.S. has seen significant federal and state policy initiatives to improve and expand assistance for the millions of family members who help care for older adults, and those who support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) across the lifespan. The pandemic, combined with workforce shortages, accelerated these efforts. In this webinar with national family caregiving experts, we discussed policy and practice advances and their potential impact on enabling more Americans to live at home and in the community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review evidence that supporting family members improves outcomes for older adults and people with I/DD.
  • An overview of current federal and state implementation of the 2022 National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers and the 2022 National Agenda for Supporting Families with a Member with I/DD.
  • Share evolving opportunities for improving policy and practice in family caregiving initiatives.
