Family Caregiver Marketing Toolkit

Reaching out to the community to find and support caregivers is an important part of a Caregiver Coordinator’s job. We created this toolkit to help make this part of your job easier.

Newsletter articles should be personalized with your contact information and can be revised to be more relevant to your county and the services you offer. You are encouraged to submit articles to your agency newsletter as well as those of partnering agencies and local newspapers.

Nutrition Assessment Highlight Pages

We started something new to showcase the highlights we observed as we conduct the 2013-2015 on-site nutrition assessments. We thought this would be a great way for you and your nutrition advisory council, staff, and volunteers to review what other programs are doing around the state. We are hoping these spark some ideas and help you make connections with programs who are doing things you have thought about or look like they may work for you locally. We hope these highlights will help you continue to improve your programs. Peers helping peers! (More will be posted as completed.)
