Report on Family Caregiving for Seniors

Lilly Hummel

The National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine released a report recommending that Medicare and Medicaid reform should engage caregivers in delivery processes. The study reviewed the prevalence of family caregiving for older adults and examined the evidence on the effectiveness of programs, supports, and other interventions designed to support family caregivers. The committee also recommended that state governments address the health, economic and social challenges of caregiving for older adults.
