If Congress doesn't act now to pass the RAISE Family Caregivers Act, millions of family caregivers – and the veterans, parents, spouses, children and adults with disabilities and other loved ones they care for – will once again be forgotten.
The bipartisan Recognize, Assist, Include, Support and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act would help ensure that communities, providers, government, and others recognize and support the more than 40 million family caregivers in America. These unsung heroes provide invaluable help to their loved ones so they can live at home and in the community – where they want to be.
Let the Senate know that you're counting on them to be champions for family caregivers. Tell your Senators to pass the RAISE Family Caregivers Act today!
By taking action you will join AARP's online network and will receive urgent news and action alerts about the issues that matter the most to older Americans, as well as information about AARP activities, events, and member benefits.
