Recommendations from the Rosalynn Carter Research
“There is no single solution. Creative integration of services and support is required. These include:
- Increased access to healthcare navigation, stress management tools, peer support.
- Create new tools to access information and virtual support, coupled with policy and benefit changes.
- Increase awareness, access and availability to respite options.
