A Voice for the Family Caregiver
The Empowered Caregiver is by, about, and for family caregivers. Family caregivers are vital to health care. They have a unique experience and a unique perspective. They require a unique voice. While family caregivers provide the bulk of care in our health care system, relatively little information about caregiving comes from family caregivers themselves. Family caregivers lack a clear voice in the health care discussion.
The Empowered Caregiver was created to help address this void, offering perceptions, insights, ideas, and innovations generated by hands-on caregivers. Empowering and fully integrating family caregivers into the evolving system of health care delivery is one sure way to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and improve health care outcomes.
