About This Toolkit

Healthy aging and recovery from illness requires a community-wide effort. That is why this toolkit provides resources to help employers, community leaders and health professionals be effective advocates for caregivers, care recipients, and mature workers in their communities.

This online toolkit has been developed in consultation with a select group of corporate partners and healthcare professionals. Families and Work Institute would like to acknowledge their critical insight and their valuable input:

  • Nancy S Wellman, PhD, RD, FADA
  • Corporate Voices for Working Families
  • National Association of Nutrition and Aging Services (NANASP)
  • Working Mother Media

This caregiver toolkit for employers was produced in partnership and made possible with the generous support of Abbott.
