National Caregiver Summit

From caring for aging parents to connecting neighbors with trusted local resources, caregivers play a critical role in supporting communities’ health. But too often, they face obstacles to performing this vital work, including unfair pay, inequitable hiring practices, and few opportunities for professional advancement. To achieve systemic change, caregivers must be in the drivers’ seat of transforming how their roles are valued, paid, and represented.

The National Caregiver Summit brings together caregivers, care receivers and allied partners to set new priorities for action and take a closer look at caregiver financial well-being and sustainability.

Millions of people rely on caregivers to achieve health and well-being with dignity. Yet, their lived experience, expertise and insights continue to be undervalued. The advocates who gather at the National Caregiver Summit aim to change this.

For Caregivers, By Caregivers

A central tenet of the Summit is to bring the caregiver voice to the forefront throughout the entire conference – including design of the day of learning. The Caregiver Summit Design Team has come together over several months to share their experiences and identify critical challenges and opportunities caregivers face. Through these discussions, the Design Team created the Summit’s goals, determined the learning agenda, and identified and helped recruit speakers and participants.
