Most older adults who need assistance depend on family and friends as their only source of help. And because social workers and nurses are at the forefront of supporting family caregivers, and in order to better prepare professionals in these fields, the American Journal of Nursing, the AARP Foundation, the Council on Social Work Education, the Family Caregiver Alliance; and the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy hosted an invitational symposium and produced this report. Both were made possible by funding from the John A. Hartford Foundation and the Jacob and Valeria Langeloth Foundation.
