Caring for Family Caregivers Part 3: Navigating Caregiving Relationships

Family caregivers are not just for pediatric and geriatric patients anymore. Family members are caring for patients of all ages and with a wide range of health care needs – from primary care to tertiary advanced care. In today’s episode, Nancy Myers, vice president of leadership system innovation at the American Hospital Association, is joined by gerontologist Dr. Maziar Goshtasbi and high risk program manager Maureen Hodge, both from Community Memorial Health System in Ventura, California. They discuss the growing rate of patients who rely on family caregivers, and why health care providers need hospital, family and community involvement in patient care and caregiver support.
