Beaches, burgers, and bringing up better care…

The Labor Day weekend is upon us, and many of you will be able to enjoy a much-needed holiday.

But if you're helping to care for a loved one, you know that there is no holiday from that crucial job. So, while you're flipping burgers on the grill, basking in the sun, or working in the garden — why not take the opportunity to share with your family, friends, and neighbors your work to make our health care system deliver for those who need it most: older adults with numerous health problems, and their caregivers!

You may be thinking, "Should I really go there, when most of our conversations are focused on who made the potato salad... and how you like your burgers cooked?" We say go for it! And we've prepared a few conversation starters to help you out.

Download your very own "cheat" sheet here.

Good luck and enjoy the long weekend!
