With Coordinated Caregiving services now included in the CAP/C Waiver, we can serve more families and reach people of all ages needing care and support,” said Matt Marek, President and CEO at Careforth. “We understand that providing care for a loved one at home – whether it’s your spouse, parent, child or friend – can be physically and emotionally demanding. With over one million family caregivers in North Carolina, our team is already in place to provide the support and connections needed most to more families across the state.”
