Pass the CARE Act!

Urge your State Representative to help Missouri’s caregiving families by passing a no-cost commonsense bill, the CARE Act, now.

Across our state, nearly 800,000 family caregivers help their older parents, spouses, adults and children with disabilities and other loved ones so they can live independently in their homes and communities—instead of in costly, taxpayer-funded institutions.  They assist with meal preparation, managing finances, transportation, and much more.

Many family caregivers also perform medical or nursing tasks for their loved ones – like complex medication management, wound care, and injections. Yet, most receive little or no training for these important duties.

That’s why AARP is asking the state legislature to support caregiving families with a no-cost commonsense bill called the CARE Act. The bill engages and supports family caregivers when their older moms, dads, spouses, and other loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home.

We need the support of your state lawmakers to pass the CARE Act. PLEASE TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY! Send a message and urge your legislators to support the CARE Act.
