Home Alone: Family Caregivers Providing Complex Chronic Care
This spotlight discusses the Caregiver Advise, Record, and Enable (CARE) Act, which became law in 40 US states and territories in four years. The groundbreaking 2012 report, Home Alone: Family Caregivers Providing Complex Chronic Care, funded by The John A. Hartford Foundation, drove policy adoption and is still currently underway in several states.
In addition to the CARE Act, the Home Alone report inspired the creation of the Home Alone AllianceSM, and the creation of key resources and tools to improve outcomes and experiences for family caregivers as they navigate the health system and providing care at home.
