Great news for family caregivers: Congress has passed the Recognize, Assist, Support and Engage (RAISE) Family Caregivers Act, and the President has signed it into law! This important 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.
Please, take a moment today to thank your members of Congress for being champions 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.
Dear [Decision Maker],
