This review and critical synthesis demonstrates that promising approaches and tools exist to make family caregivers integral partners with professionals during transitions between health care and community settings, such as from hospital to home. However, it finds that engaging family caregivers deserves higher priority in most transitional care programs. In addition, it makes a case for greater coordination between medical services and long-term services and supports (LTSS) in transitional care. It concludes with recommendations for research, quality measurement, and public policy to more meaningfully engage family caregivers as partners in transitions across settings.
