Of the 53 million caregivers in the United States, no two stories are the same. Some are told across decades, others in days. Still more are told in multiple languages across cultural divides. What is common among them all is a desire to help, a struggle to find balance, a need for self-care, and the utter confusion of what to do next. We’ve compiled this ebook to further illustrate these needs with actionable insights that health systems can use to enhance care quality, particularly in home settings for caregivers.

Inside this eBook, made in partnership with Trualta, you’ll find articles on:

2. Home Caregiver Engagement is Pivotal in Patients’ Care Transitions

3. Gaps and Racial Disparities Found in Care Transitions

  • By highlighting significant disparities and gaps in the quality of care received by patients of different racial backgrounds through recent surveys, this article underscores the urgent need for healthcare systems to address these inequities to effectively maximize outcomes.
