An initiative of AARP, AARP Foundation, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the center coordinates the Future of Nursing: Campaign for Action, a nationwide effort to transform health care through nursing, engaging a wide range of health care professionals, consumer advocates, policymakers, and the business, academic, and philanthropic communities.
A project of AARP, the Commonwealth Fund and the SCAN Foundation, the Long-Term Services and Supports Scorecard provides data on five key dimensions of state LTSS system performance: affordability and access; choice of setting and provider; quality of life and quality of care; support for family caregivers; and effective transitions. It assesses each state’s performance as a whole and on 26 individual indicators.
Throughout the United States, family caregivers provide critical support to adults with a chronic, disabling, or otherwise serious health condition. Each year, about 40 million American adults provide support with basic functional (e.g., help with eating, bathing), household (e.g., meal preparation, help with shopping), and medical/nursing tasks to help individuals remain in their homes and communities for as long as possible. Of these 40 million family caregivers, about 1 in 4 is part of the Millennial generation.
