The California Task Force on Family Caregiving has been awarded the Innovations in Alzheimer’s Caregiving Award presented by The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation, the Helen Daniels Bader Fund, A Bader Philanthropy, and Family Caregiver Alliance.
The group was led by Donna Benton, a Director at CRC Los Angeles, and supported with several members of the CRC family along with other experts in this field. All members of the task force were appointed by California’s Senate and Assembly spanning the spectrum of non-profit, private, and public sectors.
The task force was organized with a goal to pick up the pace of public policy change to support family caregivers in California stating that, “Existing policies in California to support [4 million] caregivers have not kept pace with changing needs.”
The final presented report was titled, “Picking up the Pace of Change in California” and is available to view here. It included 7 actionable recommendations for improving the infrastructure for family caregivers in the state of California.
The Task Force was sponsored by University of Southern California’s Family Caregiver Support Center and ultimately awarded $20,000 for its accomplishments in its efforts to research and recommend paths for meaningful change under the Public Policy category.
The California Caregiver Resource Centers are proud of the hard work of our teams and their dedication to finding valuable resources and solutions for family caregivers. To learn more about the California Caregiver Resource Centers and to connect with your local center, click here.Share this post:
