About This Event

Increasingly, families across the country are navigating myriad caregiving challenges every day. All Americans will need care at some point in their lives and there are currently 41.6 million caregivers across the United States, almost half of whom provide complex chronic care. The Center for American Progress is hosting an event to examine the breadth of caregiving challenges facing many different communities—from families with aging relatives, to people with disabilities, to military families, to individuals dealing with their own illnesses, and more. The discussion will highlight the diverse needs of families and explore what steps we can take—now and in the future—to find responsive solutions that work for all families.
