Thank You
Thank you, Sen. Collins.

Just this month, the U.S. Senate passed a bipartisan bill to support family caregivers, introduced and championed by Senator Susan Collins. The Recognize, Assist, Include, Support and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act requires the development of a national strategy to support family caregivers.

AARP endorses the RAISE Family Caregivers Act and hopes our members will join us in thanking Sen. Collins for taking this first, important, step in changing how we support all family caregivers in Maine and across the country.

At AARP, we believe supporting family caregivers is a top priority for all of us. Help us thank Sen. Collins for her bipartisan leadership on family caregiving here in Maine and across the country.

Thank you for supporting family caregivers.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Over a hundred thousand Mainers help care for their older parents, spouses and other loved ones so they can live in their homes and communities. They provide unpaid care that's valued at more than $2.2 billion, helping to eliminate the need for more expensive nursing home care and unnecessary hospitalizations.

That's why I'm joining AARP in thanking you for introducing and championing the Recognize, Assist, Include, Support, and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act in the U.S. Senate to require the development of a national strategy to support family caregivers.

Family caregivers help their loved ones with bathing and dressing, preparing meals--and much more, like complex medical tasks. It's a labor of love, to be sure, and sometimes more than a full time job. Family caregivers need our support.

I thank you, Sen. Collins, for your bipartisan leadership and support of family caregivers--and for bringing this vital issue to the forefront.
