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 the Fall. Stay tuned for the registration link.
