Great news for family caregivers: Congress has just passed the Recognize, Assist, Support and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act! This important bipartisan bill will help ensure that communities, providers, government, and others recognize and support the more than 40 million family caregivers in America. It’s a step forward for these unsung heroes, who help older Americans and people with disabilities live at home and in their communities, where they want to be.
Your Senator, Susan Collins, sponsored this important legislation. Please, take a moment today to thank her for being a champion for family caregivers!
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.
