The number of grandparents and other older relatives who are caring for children is significant and growing, in part due to the opioid crisis. Although caregivers’ lives are enhanced by the experience, providing full-time care to children can decrease caregivers’ abilities to address their own health and well-being needs.

Recognizing that these caregivers would benefit from improved coordination of resources intended to support them, as well as better dissemination of information about those resources, the Supporting Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Act established an Advisory Council to Support Grandparents Raising Grandchildren.
