The new videos are just one element of the Ask Medicare Initiative, which is like a GPS system for caregivers, helping them navigate challenging issues and find necessary information to make better healthcare decisions for their loved ones. The main feature of Ask Medicare is a one-stop, easy-to-use Web site (www.medicare.gov/caregivers) with targeted information, decision-making resources, and support tools. The Web site also includes a free e-newsletter and instructive, personal stories from caregivers.
More than 44 million Americans provide an estimated $375 billion in care for others. These caregivers provide a wide range of assistance from picking up prescriptions to managing appointments and finances to providing dedicated in-home care. Caregivers often feel alone and overwhelmed, juggling a myriad of competing responsibilities under significant time-constraints.
CMS created the Ask Medicare Initiative to support the nation's caregivers and provide them information and resources to help create a healthier life for their loved one.
