Family caregivers constitute a critical, yet often invisible, support network for older adults and other vulnerable populations. The NASW Standards for Social Work Practice with Family Caregivers of Older Adults (2010) strive to enhance social workersâ€™ awareness of the knowledge and skills needed for effective practice with family caregivers of older adults. The standards complement existing national initiatives focusing on family caregivers of older adults and may be useful in informing social work practice with other family caregivers.
