Assessing Family Caregiver Needs: Policy and Practice Considerations

Published: July 24, 2012
Authors: Lynn Feinberg and Ari Houser, AARP Public Policy Institute

 

Overview

Caregiver assessment is a systematic process of gathering information about a caregiving situation to identify the specific problems, needs, strengths, and resources of the family caregiver, as well as the ability of the caregiver to contribute to the needs of the care recipient. Effectively assessing and addressing caregiver needs can maintain the health and well-being of caregivers, sustain their ability to provide care, prevent or postpone nursing home placement, and produce better outcomes for the care recipient.
