In a brief published today, CHRT outlines the most common programs to support unpaid caregivers—family members or friends who provide care for people who need assistance with day to day tasks. The brief explores:
- The reach, efficacy, and evidence of these programs
- The caregiver population in Michigan
- The capacity of organizations to meet the needs and demands of family and informal caregivers.
- The ways that family and informal support programs can be improved around the state.
The report provides state legislatures, funders, caregiver organizations, and community members with recommendations for expanding the reach and impact of caregiver programs.
