The Changing Face of Caregiving in the 21st Century

November is National Alzheimer’s Month and Family Caregivers Month, offering an important opportunity to reflect on the changing role of caregiving and how dementia is shaping our nation’s care crisis. We kicked off this month with former first lady Rossalyn Carter and leaders from across the country at The Rosalynn Carter Institute’s Caregiving in the 21st Century Summit where we explored these themes. The Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving combined the traditional voices of health providers with more unconventional perspectives, including Sesame Street’s Rosita and award-winning journalist Judy Woodruff, to develop solutions to support our nation’s 40 million family caregivers.
