“We have a unique and timely opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of America’s over 48 million family caregivers by putting into action the National Strategy to Support Family Caregivers, which was delivered to Congress last September. The strategy stemmed from the RAISE Family Caregivers Act, championed by AARP, and includes nearly 350 tangible actions that the federal government can take now to give family caregivers, who are the backbone of this country’s long-term care system, some of the help they so desperately need.”

– Nancy LeaMond, AARP Executive Vice President and Chief Advocacy & Engagement Officer
