Recommendations for Colorado from the Alzheimer’s Association
- Educate employers about the issues facing family caregivers and encourage them to establish policies such as flextime, telecommuting, referral services, and on-site support programs.
- Ensure that local Area Agencies on Aging are aware of and promote existing training materials available to family caregivers, especially those located in rural areas.
- Increase funding for and expand the reach of the Savvy Caregiver program and equivalent training programs for all stages of dementia.
