Project Description Narrative:


Within the ineffective, fragmented, network of organizations encountered by chronically ill seniors and their caregivers, it is not standard or common for caregivers to receive timely, relevant information to assist them along with consistent support. Caregivers of chronically ill seniors require a coordinated, consistent, collaborative system of health care, government and community. Project partners seek to establish a system that provides early identification in the senior's continuum of care and gives timely, relevant, appropriate support to family caregivers.
