Supporting Family Caregivers: No Longer Home Alone

Evidence suggests that family caregivers aren't being given the information they need to manage the complex care regimens of their family members. Supporting Family Caregivers: No Longer Home Alone, a series of articles and accompanying videos published in collaboration with the AARP Public Policy Institute, aims to help nurses provide caregivers with the tools needed to manage a family member's medications.
