Caring for the Caregivers: RI Elder Info Seeks Your Input

RI Elder Info is seeking to better understand the needs of older adult caregivers who are caring for adults with disabilities living in the community. They have created a brief online survey to gather information from caregivers as well as service providers for individuals who have disabilities. 
They hope to learn what older adult caregivers need and want to age successfully in the community and to learn what service providers believe their clients’ older caregivers need for them both to age successfully in the community. This input will inform their advocacy efforts to improve caregiver support. The survey takes 5-10 minutes and the answers are kept confidential. It is available in English and Spanish.

Who should take the survey?

Any caregiver, caregiver groups, and provider organizations


When is the deadline to submit?

The survey is expected to remain open through the end of February.
