This webinar will present findings from three recent studies on family caregiving. A new National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP study, Caregiving in the US 2015, provides an updated national profile of family caregivers. Analyses from the Community Living Policy Center highlight the changing patterns of family caregiving over the past decade. Finally, a recent study by Easter Seals, with support from MassMutual Financial Group, takes a closer look at Millennial and Generation X caregivers and individuals from those generations who have yet to take on that role. Findings provide advocates and policymakers with useful information to better design and advance delivery of family caregiver supports and services. Presentations will be followed by an open discussion about implications for state and federal policy.
