Care for older adults is provided by informal (unpaid) and formal (paid) caregivers, both of which increasingly care for people with higher levels of acuity and complex conditions. Family caregivers— who are often juggling other family and work responsibilities while living remotely from the care recipient—need better support, training, resources and tools to support their loved ones and themselves. On the professional side, staff shortages and quality concerns require new solutions to help attract, train, develop and leverage scarce human capital.
