Caregiver Partners

Caregivers are broadly defined as family members, friends or neighbors who provide unpaid assistance to a person with a chronic illness or disabling condition.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) works to build bridges with caregiver organizations, both federal and non-federal, to better serve Americans in need with national and local resources to assist in their caregiving efforts.

CMS hosts a quarterly Caregiver Workgroup meeting. It includes a cross-section of organizations such as caregiver organizations, aging network organizations, Federal Agencies, disease specific organizations, employers, and others.

**The next quarterly Caregiver Workgroup meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 6, 2019 from 9am-11am ET in Washington DC. Please register to attend this meeting at:CMS Caregiver Workgroup Mtg.
