WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Together we make all the difference
Transforming Care Partners (TCP) propelled us forward by converting our vision into action. With TCP’s guidance, we have developed deep and ongoing relationships with organizations and leaders in the community and are working to overcome racial disparities through developing culturally appropriate messages, tools and activities to help older adults learn why and how to engage in advance care planning and access palliative care.
Kelly Dearman, Executive Director, Disability and Aging Services, San Francisco Human Services Agency and Co-Chair, San Francisco Palliative Care Workgroup
Kathleen listened and really “got” us. She understood our goals and the role that measurement and data plays in catalyzing the changes we wanted to bring about. The work she outlined has served as a blueprint for much of our data-driven quality improvement.

Transforming Care Partners saw all of the possibilities and players in the space and instantly understood how to leverage my offerings for greatest impact.
It is a rare opportunity to work with Foundations that are true thought partners where community experience and input are respected and actually direct their grantmaking. TCP has created such a model for the Stupski Foundation. It is always a pleasure to partner with them and benefit from their years of expertise and collaborative envisioning.
THE NEED FOR TRANSFORMATION
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live their highest quality of life through all the stages of their life.
Yet this is not always the reality
As our family members age, we provide unpaid assistance valued at more than $306B per year. But 80% of family caregivers say they could use more help and 33% suffer from poor health themselves.
As we near the end of life, 67% of us experience pain 50% have unmet emotional needs.
It doesn't have to be this way.
caregivers need more help
people experience pain at end-of-life
do not have enough emotional support
TRANSFORMATION IS POSSIBLE
As our nation ages, there is a higher demand for support and services to meet the needs of an aging population.
Advances in health information technology mean we are poised to meet the existing need.
We have evidence-based strategies ready to go to scale.
Transforming how we deliver care also makes good economic sense: evidence shows that higher quality care doesn’t cost more money. improve quality of remaining life, and in some cases, prolong life.
Public awareness about the need to transform care is growing at all levels.
