Although the surrounding circumstances have changed in the 21st Century, family and friends remain the primary source of care and support for adults with chronic illnesses or disabilities in the U.S. What is different now than in the past? How can we address the key challenges for family care in the decades ahead? The National Center on Caregiving at FCA, in partnership with the American Society on Aging (ASA), convened Family Caregiving: State of the Art, Future Trends to bring together key experts from practice, policy and research to consider these questions.
The conference, which took place in Chicago on March 6, 2007, offered fresh perspectives on cutting edge research, explored effective service interventions and identified emerging issues that will profoundly affect family caregivers and those for whom they care. In all, 271 individuals from 41 states in the U.S. and two countries (Israel and Japan) took part in the conference, learning about promising practices and research trends pertinent to family caregiving. These proceedings aim to convey the key ideas and findings presented at the conference.
