    We prepared a quick survey to determine how our caregivers were responding to COVID-19 and offer them resources that we thought they might want to have.  See attached.

    We don’t have an assessment tool for COVID-19. But, we are getting ready to do a more general family caregiver assessment and are including this:

    How has the current situation with COVID-19 added to your challenges as a family caregiver? (check all that apply)

    • There are no care providers available
    • I am not comfortable having a care provider come into my home
    • I am not sure what help I can get
    • There aren't organizations that offer what I need
    • Can’t find answers to my questions
    • I don't know where to get information
    • Written information is not understandable
    • Other
    • Has not added to my challenges as a caregiver
