National Partnership for Women & Families

In Their Words

Every day, in communities across the country, patients cope with extraordinary pressures from a health care system that fails to put their needs first or effectively coordinate their care.


And family caregivers — including wives, daughters, husbands, sons, sisters, brothers, grandchildren, other relatives and friends — struggle to help, often with little or no support.

These two quotes are examples of why we are focusing on real-world implementation in local communities.

“After 60 years, this is the first time someone has asked me my opinion as a patient.”
— Patient Advisor in Humboldt County, CA

“This is the first time we’ve engaged patients and families in a real way in anything we’ve done, and it feels really good.”
— Chief Nursing Officer in Griffin, GA
