Caregivers

We are researching a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary care delivery approach to meet the needs of both caregivers and the recipients of care, ensuring the foundations of Successful Aging are more fully realized.

What We're Doing

The Institute is researching opportunities to integrate and align the efforts of caregivers, healthcare providers and systems to reduce the burden on caregivers, help ensure coordination of caregiver efforts and enable access to more continuous, community-based care better aligned with emerging patient needs and corresponding value-based incentives. In one collaboration with Mount Sinai Health System, the Institute is developing an eLearning training program that will provide granular knowledge, skills, and just-in-time support to family caregivers on a variety of topics including medication management, wound care, and monitoring medical equipment.
