Join Aging2.0 Local: Madison as we kick off a quarterly series of events to support networking and innovation in the Madison area. Held at the Festival Foods community room in the heart of Madison's emerging tech and start-up neighborhood, this free event will feature the Center for Aging Research and Education (CARE) team building a web app to support family caregivers.
The CARE team is looking for feedback on the prototype application and invites you to attend the presentation and offer input on the development and marketing of the product. We expect a good conversation about this app in particular and about aging and technology resources in general.

Dr. Bowers’ research focuses on frail, older adults and people with lifelong disabilities, in both community and residential settings. She is interested in how public policies, organizational practices and models of care delivery influence quality of care and quality of work life for caregivers. Her interest in work life quality for workers in long term care systems has led her to examine causes of staff turnover, the relationships among organizational structure, organizational culture, management practices, and care outcomes, and to explore ways to improve the effectiveness of staff development. Her work with informal caregivers at home has led to the development of tools to provide anticipatory guidance and support caregiver decision making.
