Conversation #1 Recognizing the Family Caregiver Role
September 20 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Family caregivers have been called the “Invisible Workforce” and the “Backbone of the Healthcare System”, yet family caregivers are not recognized in policy nor as partners in care by health and social care providers. The lack of recognition of the family caregiver role was particularly evident during the COVID-19 pandemic, as family caregivers were referred to as ‘visitors.’
This conversation aims to answer the question, “How do we improve recognition of family caregivers and the importance of the family caregiver role?”
