Cross-Border Conversations on Caregiving!

The Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging (TSLCA) held three opportunities to engage in cross-border conversations on caregiving in November, 2016. Each regional event brought people together to focus on informal family caregiving from a multifaceted point of view. Care partners, community providers, researchers, policy experts and municipal, business and community leaders sat at the same tables to share information on the resources, policies and tools that currently support care partners and helped build a road-map for collective action to address the many challenges they still face.

A full report that combines the findings of the three cross-border conversations is posted here.

Learn what friends & family, communities, employers & businesses, health care & social service providers, and policy leaders & advocates can do to make life easier for people who provide care for a loved one with a chronic or disabling condition.

CBCC Recommendations

TSLCA knows that one of the barriers for caregivers to get needed help is not knowing where to turn. These state-specific guides are a first stop to finding what you need.

  2. New Hampshire Resource Guide
  3. Maine Resource Guide

Several of our attendees asked for a full list of people who attended the cross-border conversations. Click here to download an excel sheet with a list of all of the participants.

During registration we did not ask people if it was OK to share their contact information so it is not included on the list of participants. If you would like to contact a specific person, email the Tri-State Learning Collaborative on Aging team (tslconaging@gmail,com) and we will help you to make the connection.

Another way to reach out to other people who are working to make their community an easier place for people who are living with dementia and for care partners is to join the TSLCA Community Leaders Forum Google Group. The group isn’t just for people who are chairing a committee or leading a service. It is for anyone who is doing work to make their community a better place to age in place.
