details:
More than 50 million Americans currently care for an ill or elderly family member or friend—and that number is set to skyrocket in the coming years, as our aging population surpasses the number of available caregivers. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of family caregivers as advocates and critical members of care teams—and yet unpaid family caregivers often experience severe economic and emotional strain, as well as difficulty finding respite care, benefits, and broader support. Moreover, the demands of providing care at home have grown, as the health-care system increasingly relies on family caregivers to provide round-the-clock care and perform complex medical tasks, often with little minimal training. In this panel, Kate Washington—author of Already Toast: Caregiving and Burnout in America—and panelist, Mary Taylor RN and Dominique McLaughlin LPC will share their personal stories of caregiving and discuss both the challenges facing family caregivers and the systemic changes needed to better support their critical role in patient care.
