Innovations in Caregiving: COVID, Caregiving Intensity, and Mental Health

Moving from data to action to support unpaid caregivers

The Massachusetts Technology Collaborative, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Caregiver Coalition, invites you to the inaugural event in our new "Innovations in Caregiving" virtual series, a series designed to publicize research data and highlight innovative approaches, products, and services that respond to the data points and empower caregivers.

"COVID, Caregiver Intensity, and Mental Health: Moving from data to action to support unpaid caregivers" will focus on the impact of COVID on caregivers' mental health, the influence that caregiving intensity has on that impact, and the strategies that organizations are using to respond to this situation.

The webinar will feature Chuck Czeisler, author on the CDC report “Mental Health, Substance Use, and Suicidal Ideation During the COVID-19 Pandemic”; Alexandra Drane, CEO of ARCHANGELS, whose caregiver intensity index was used to measure the impact of caregiving in the survey; plus Anna Gosline, Senior Director of Strategic Initiatives at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and a representative of the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs who will discuss the implications of this data and the actions that they are taking to respond.
