New Jersey Care Partner Support Pilot Program: Findings

September 13, 2012

Hilltop Policy Analyst Aaron Tripp, MSW, gave a presentation with IMPAQ International Senior Research Associate Cynthia H. Woodcock, MBA, at the 28th Annual National Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Conference in Arlington, VA, which took place September 10 through 13, 2012. This session, entitled Assessing Family Caregiver Needs: The New Frontier, included presentations from the AARP Public Policy Institute and the Family Caregiver Alliance. The presentation discussed highlights of Hilltop’s evaluation of the Pilot Program, which was designed to improve the knowledge and skills of family caregivers for beneficiaries enrolled in waiver programs following a caregiver self-assessment. Implications for health care and social service professionals to better recognize and support families as partners in care and recommendations for further expansion of caregiver assessments were addressed.
