Any Care Counts 

  • Alexandra Drane, Co-Founder and CEO, ARCHANGELS

Almost half of caregivers deal with the added responsibility of caring for a loved one, family member, neighbor, or friend. Keynote speaker Alexandra Drane is CEO and Co-founder of ARCHANGELS, an organization that advocates for unpaid caregivers.

She will share ARCHANGELS’ most recent data, which illustrates that these caregivers are widespread, often unaware of their “double-duty” situation, and the massive opportunity we have to recognize and connect them to support. Because data should drive action, Alexandra will share how that information is translating into impact with public-private partnerships in several states. By measuring and buffering the intensity of this unpaid care, we can create huge social and economic shifts that improve the health of our caregivers everywhere.

Incorporating input from behavioral health, primary care, and nurse case managers, patients benefit from an interdisciplinary team’s various perspectives and continuous, point-of-care updates to find innovative solutions to shared problems. This panel will share their experience and lessons learned from this value-based arrangement.
