Caregiver Task Force: Survey
The Caregiver Task Force has been charged with a one-year mission to develop recommendations to the legislature to help New Jersey’s caregivers. The task force is staffed by the Division of Aging, DHS and consists of a few caregiver representatives as well as representatives from various organizations that touch caregivers including the Alzheimer’s Association, The Arc of NJ, Leading Age NJ/DE, NAMI NJ, AARP, Caregivers of NJ, the Home Care and Hospice Association of NJ.
By participating in this critical online survey, you will help determine the needs of caregivers across New Jersey. This survey will help identify what services can be improved, expanded, or introduced to reduce the burden of caregiving and improve people’s lives. If you are a caregiver, please take a few minutes now to complete this survey.
