Diverse Elders Coalition Launches New Caregiving Community Survey

Apr 15, 2019

The Diverse Elders Coalition recently launched a new online survey for family caregivers in communities of color, American Indian and Alaska Native communities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.

The Caregiving Community Survey is an opportunity for anyone providing care for an aging spouse, partner, parent, grandparent, other relative, neighbor, or friend to anonymously share their experiences and help the Diverse Elders Coalition develop tools and resources to better meet the needs of our communities.

Participants will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 Target gift card at the conclusion of the survey collection period.

The Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative has been invited to share this survey with our networks to help us reach a national, representative audience. The survey is currently available in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese, with additional languages – including Chinese, Khmer, Korean, Hmong, and Lao – being added in the next two weeks.

Survey collection will end on May 10, 2019.

The survey can be accessed at Additionally, we have created a series of five advertisements showcasing caregivers in the communities we serve, which you are welcome to use to promote the survey via email or social media. I am attaching them here for your use. If you would like them in different sizes, please let me know!

The Diverse Elders Coalition’s caregiving work, including this community survey, is generously supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation. We have partnered with the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging to conduct this survey.
