Help Us Hear From Colorado’s Unpaid Caregivers

In collaboration with several organizations across the state, including the Alzheimer’s Association and Easterseals, the Bell Policy Center is working to ensure there are adequate community resources for family and friend caregivers throughout Colorado. This includes those who provide unpaid care to an adult loved one by doing things such as helping with rides, managing medications, or assisting with personal care.

To better understand the experiences and needs of these Coloradans, we’ve developed a short, five-minute survey for individual caregivers. Currently, nearly one-fifth of Colorado adults provide unpaid support to an older loved one. Even as many gladly take on this additional role, we also know unpaid caregiving can come with tremendous physical, emotional, and financial strains. We hope this survey can play a role in helping develop and ensure better resources for these community members. 

We are looking for partners to help circulate this survey. Participants are not asked any identifying information, and the survey is open until the end of June. Additionally, we’re more than happy to share the survey results with collaborating organizations. Questions can be directed to the Bell Policy Center’s Andrea Kuwik at either or 412-580-9921.

Please help us reach Colorado’s unpaid caregivers by circulating this link with partners and others.

Below is some suggested text you can use to share with distribution lists should you choose to share the survey broadly.
Do you care for an adult friend or family member? Do you help out with driving your loved ones to appointments, cooking their meals, or coordinating medical care for them? Do you do this all without pay? If so, we want to hear from you! In this five-minute, completely confidential survey, we ask about the caregiving resources you both use and want. We’ll use your feedback to work with organizations across the state to create the meaningful, targeted services Colorado caregivers need. If you have questions, you can reach out to Andrea Kuwik with the Bell Policy Center at

Thank you for your help!
